Mu is modal. It works as a general purpose Python 3 editor, as a MicroPython editor for the BBC’s micro:bit device, or as a CircuitPython editor for Adafruit boards.
Mu’s philosophy is:
Less is more (remove all unnecessary distractions);
Keep it simple (so Mu is easy to understand);
Walk the path of least resistance (Mu should be easy to use);
Have fun (learning should be a positive experience).
If you have python 3 installed, just do this!
$ pip3 install mu-editor
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
