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 – micro:bit
MicroPython – openmv
MicroPython – PyCom
MicroPython – LEGO
MicroPython – Xbee
MicroPython – Casio
MicroPython – Numworks
MicroPython – Microsemi, RISC-V (RV32 and RV64) architecture
MaixPy – Sipeed
ArduPy – Seeed
ESP32 ones… loboris
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.
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.

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.
