CircuitPython on Linux and Raspberry Pi @adafruit @Raspberry_Pi #RaspberryPi

Blinkapi 853
We’re always looking for ways to make making easier – whether that’s making breakout boards for hard-to-solder sensors or writing libraries to simplify motor control. Our new favorite way to program microcontrollers is CircuitPython.

But…sometimes you want to do more than a microcontroller can do. Like HDMI video output, or camera capture, or serving up a website, or just something that takes more memory and computing than a microcontroller board can do…

The next obvious step is to bring CircuitPython back to ‘desktop Python’. We’ve got tons of projects, libraries and example code for CircuitPython on microcontrollers, and thanks to the flexibility and power of Python its pretty easy to get it working with micro-computers like Raspberry Pi or other ‘Linux with GPIO pins available’ single board computers.

We’ve started out with demonstrating that you can wire up a popular BME280 temperature/humidity/pressure sensor, to a Raspberry Pi and within a 3 minutes: using pip to install the CircuitPython support library and BME280 CircuitPython driver, then running our example code. You can now unlock our massive number of drivers and libraries — right now, there’s 85 of them! while still enjoying the power and flexibility of Linux and Raspberry Pi

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.
