Circuit Python: Open Serial Console will prompt you for a serial port to connect to, then it will display the serial output form the board attached to that port. The port can be changed by clicking on it’s path in the status bar. It will also change your workspace’s default board.pyi file for autocomplete to the one that matches the USB Vendor ID & Product ID. If you want to manually choose a different board, a list is availble with the command CircuitPython: Choose CircuitPython Board, and also by clicking on the board name in the status bar.
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.
