since Qt is available for embedded devices, I’d love to be able to use Qt5 Designer and pyuic5 just as I do with regular Python to create awesome GUIs for my CircuitPython projects (when they have a fully-featured screen, of course).
I would love for there to be a library for CircuitPython that allows for the use of the lighting control standard DMX-512 like the Arduino libraries DMXSimple or DMXSerial. I love how easy to program CircuitPython is, and I would love to be able to use it for my theatrical lighting projects! #CircuitPython2020
The thing I’d add for Circuit Python 2020 is learning. The one book that is out is very basic. It does not take you in very much depth. And I don’t learn well from searching through the documentation to learn. So this is my idea for #CircuitPython2020! Also I’ve found that the Learning guides don’t always work. It maybe due to update firmware/software. But without adequate knowledge of the programing, I can’t figure out what is wrong. There are two that I can think of, the Adafruit New product guide for the PyPortal and the second is the weather station.
Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to. While Adafruit is not an independent journalistic institution, Adafruit strives to be a fair, informative, and positive voice within the community – check it out here: adafruit.com/editorialstandards
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.
