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).
On a related note, I really like the logos ideas 🙂
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more.
