The many forks of MicroPython @micropython #micropython


There are many interesting forks of MicroPython and I’m going to get them in one place with as much information as possible. This is the start of the list on GitHub, please add any comments here with ones we’ve missed, or open an issue/PR to update the list. I’ll add some more formatting later, this is for info-gathering at the moment!

List so far …

  • MicroPython
  • MicroPython – micro:bit
  • MicroPython – openmv
  • MicroPython – PyCom
  • MicroPython – LEGO
  • MicroPython – Xbee
  • MicroPython – Casio
  • MicroPython – Numworks
  • Pycopy
  • MicroPython – Microsemi, RISC-V (RV32 and RV64) architecture
  • MaixPy – Sipeed
  • ArduPy – Seeed
  • ESP32 ones… loboris
  • CircuitPython
  • CircuitPython – TI (called TI-Python)
  • CircuitPython – Gamebuino

Looking to add:

  • Name, is it also called MicroPython?
  • Where it is located, is the source code available?
  • What chip(s)/platform(s) are supported?
  • Who are the authors/maintainers?
  • 2-3 sentences of why the fork was made or link/overview.

Updated and latest is here:

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, 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.

Join 32,000+ makers on Adafruit’s Discord channels and be part of the community!

Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
