• Add new PythonProcessPanel to better handle interactions with child Python3 processes. Includes basic command history and command editing.
• Move the old “run” functionality in Python3 mode into a new “Debug” button.
• Create a new “Run” button in Python3 mode that uses the new PythonProcessPanel.
• Automation of 32bit and 64bit Windows installers (thanks to Thomas Kluyver for his fantastic pynsist tool).
• Add / revise developer documentation in light of changes above.
• (All the changes mentioned above were supported by the Raspberry Pi Foundation – Thank you!)
• Update / add USB PIDs for Adafruit boards (thanks Adafruit for the heads up).
• Minor cosmetic changes.
• Additional test cases.
Beta! (previous post). Just to get this somewhere, being able to write code from the CircuitPython “drive” with it auto-running on save *and* being able to have a REPL all in the same window is a fantastic coding experience. Lots of real-time, iteration, learning, and more, all in one spot for beginners. Good work Ntoll.
Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
