An Adafruit PyPortal CircuitPython tutorial #CircuitPython #PyPortal #Adafruitr @CircuitPython @Adafruit

Adafruit PyPortal IoT Display

NanoDano posts on Dev_Dungeon an extensive tutorial on using the Adafruit PyPortal smart display with CircuitPython.

The PyPortal is an awesome little IoT device that is programmable with CircuitPython. It’s got WiFi, a color touch screen, a speaker and speaker connector, microSD card slot, 8MB flash memory, a light sensor, a temperature sensor, a NeoPixel LED, a few JST connectors, and more!

You can buy a PyPortal at Adafruit (and resellers). This tutorial covers the PyPortal that came in AdaBox011. I don’t believe there are any differences between the AdaBox version and the one you can buy separately from the shop. Ed: no difference, although the PyPortal line has been expanded to include the PyPortal Pynt (smaller) and PyPortal Titano (larger).

In this tutorial we will take a look at the various components and how to use them in CircuitPython with code examples for each. After following the tutorial you should have a solid grasp on the PyPortal.

The tutorial has extensive instructions and code samples.

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.
