We’ve updated the Adafruit Optical Fingerprint Sensor 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 the fingerprint sensor to work on Linux. The full example shows how to enroll, find and delete fingerprints.
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.
