MakeCode is built on the Microsoft Programming Experience Toolkit (PXT), which powers editors for a variety of hardware platforms. This guide offers concise instructions for installing the MakeCode for Adafruit project on a system you control.
This breaks down a couple of approaches to getting a local install of MakeCode that you can use to work on the software or host a copy on a server of your choosing.
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.
