Using Visual Studio Code to program Circuit Python with an AdaFruit NeoTrellis M4

Via Scott Hanselman’s blog:

My son and I were working on an Adafruit NeoTrellis M4 Mainboard over the holidays. This amazing little device puts a NeoPixel + an Audio board + a USB port along with a 120 MHz Cortex M4 Core and a mic amplifier and you can program it with CircuitPython.

CircuitPython is open source and on Github at https://github.com/adafruit/circuitpython. “CircuitPython is an education friendly open source derivative of MicroPython.” It works with a bunch of boards including this NeoTrellis and it’s just lovely for teaching and learning.

There’s a great Python editor called Mu that works well with CircuitPython. However, my son and I are more familiar with Visual Studio Code so we wanted to see how it worked with CircuitPython.

We installed the Python extension for VS Code as well as the Arduino extension for VS Code and the Arduino IDE directly from the Windows Store….(now) we have a nice Developer Inner Loop going. That inner loop for us (the developers) is that we can write some code, hit save (Ctrl-S) and get immediate feedback. The application restarts when it detects the code.py file has changed and any debug (print) statements appear in the console immediately.

We are really enjoying this Adafruit NeoTrellis M4 Express kit. Next we’re going to make a beat sequencer since the Christmas Soundboard was such a hit with mom!

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
