Thanks so much to Kevin for sending us this tip! Kevin writes:
The app is still a work in progress. But my latest release of the app smoothed out some of the user control as well as added some nifty gadgets – like an Aux Switch Panel to remotely turn thingamagigs on or off.
The app-to-sketch architecture is unique in that it was designed for
tinkers/hackers that want to create their own modes (LED sequences). Check out the github repo for the details. After you update the sketch with your new mode code, just re-open the app or hit the reload icon in the app and your new mode will magically appear in the mode list in the app.
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.
