In the previous “episode” of the GitHub authoring series, we introduced a simple way to host your MakeCode projects on GitHub.
In our latest round of updates, we’ve integrated more GitHub features into MakeCode which let you stay right where you are without having to jump between both web sites.
To host ones MakeCode in a GitHub repository, Microsoft added a “create GitHub repository” button under the simulator.
Once the project is associated to a GitHub repository, the create GitHub repository button becomes a status bar. It shows you the GitHub project name (and the branch if it’s not master) and an up arrow if you have local changes.
The new GitHub authoring reloaded feature is currently available in:
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
