Adafruit Circuit Playground Express Editor v0.20.13 @MsMakeCode #MakeCode

Demo

Adafruit Circuit Playground Express Editor v0.20.13 – Microsoft MakeCode.

Microsoft MakeCode brings computer science to life with fun projects, immediate results, and both blocks and text editors for learners of all levels!

We are very excited to remove the beta label from https://makecode.adafruit.com. This update brings Scratch style rendering of the blocks, better support for assistive technologies, a console view, and many - many - many fixes.

The editor is out of beta and is considered a stable release now. You shouldn’t expect to see any API or major UI changes going forward.

In this release, we’ve re-vamped the look of our blocks which are now aligned with Scratch. We’ve based our open source Blockly fork (pxt-blockly) on scratch-blocks.

Vision impaired students can use screen readers, such as Narrator, for audible navigation and identification of visual elements. The JavaScript editor also offers additional features for assistive technologies.
High contrast mode helps low-vision students locate and distinguish the different visual elements in the MakeCode editor.

Consoleoutput

Use the new console blocks to log text or stream values to our new console output viewer. You can visualize data from the simulator or from the Circuit Playground Express itself using our Windows App.

AND MORE!
