Guide Updated: Pixie – the 3W Chainable LED Pixel #AdafruitLearningSystem #Adafruit #CircuitPython @Adafruit
We’ve updated the Pixie – the 3W Chainable LED Pixel guide to include Python usage on Linux using the Adafruit Blinka library! The new Python & CircuitPython section includes wiring to a Raspberry Pi and a USB to serial converter, and explains what changes need to be made to CircuitPython code for Pixies to work on Linux. There is a full example that shows how to change individual Pixies, change them all at once, or use slicing to change ranges of them.
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.
