Guide Update: Sensor Plotting Soil Moisture with Mu and CircuitPython
We’ve been doing a bunch of sensor data plotting with the plotter function in Mu. Now we’ve added how to plot soil moisture using capacitive touch on Circuit Playground Express using Mu and CircuitPython! If you want to see how to plot the plot soil moisture as your plants dry out over time, you can follow the steps in this page to get your own soil moisture plot up and running!
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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
