Next, we’ll talk about making that visualizer (or other code) available over the network, so that you can easily send it traffic from other computers, including Linux, Windows, OS X, and mobile devices.
We’ll use a grab bag of tools to accomplish this:
netcat – a command-line utility for easily pushing traffic around a network.
Flask – a fast and easy Python web application framework.
By the end of this guide, you should be equipped with a useful toolkit for bridging the gaps between networked machines for all sorts of projects.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
