A Python Numpy-like library written for MicroPython #MicroPython #Numpy #Python #ulab @Hackaday
Via Hackaday, Zoltán Vörös has written ulab, a library for MicroPython which implements a subset of the Python Numpy array manipulation library.
Zoltán had a project in MicroPython that needed a very fast FFT on a microcontroller, and was looking at all of the options when it occurred to him that a more structured approach like the one we all know and love in CPython would be possible on a microcontroller. He ended up with a Python library that could do a FFT 50 times faster than the pure Python implementation, while providing all the readability and ease of use benefits that NumPy and Python together provide.

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.
