Automating the making of beautiful pinout diagrams for microcontroller boards #Documentation @AT_Makers
Bill Binko from ATMakers.org has taken on the noble task of making accurate color pinout diagrams for some Adafruit microcontroller boards. He walks in the footsteps of pighxxx and others who first brought this art to makers.
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.
Totally automated data driven pinout generator in pure python. The advantage is, you can easily tweak pin labels in a text file and regenerate. You don’t have to keep redrawing and aligning and wishing you were coding rather than making pinout diagrams.
