A new plotter works with CircuitPython and micro:bit modes. If you emit tuples of numbers via the serial connection (e.g. print((1, 2, 3)) as three arbitrary values) over time these will be plotted as line graphs. Many thanks to Limor “ladyada” Fried for contributing code for this feature.
Major refactoring of how Mu interacts with connected MicroPython based boards in order to enable the plotter and REPL to work independently.
Mu has a new mode for Pygame Zero (version 1.1). Thanks to Dan Pope for Pygame Zero and Rene Dudfield for being Pygame maintainer.
It’s now possible to run mu “python3 -m mu”. Thanks to Cefn Hoile for the contribution.
Add support for pirkey Adafruit board. Thanks again Adafruit.
Updated all the dependencies to the latest upstream versions.
Various minor bug fixes and guards to make Mu more robust (although this will always be bugs!).
On Linux or MacOS: “pip install mu-editor” (then start with the “mu” command).
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.
