Guide Updated: Creating and sharing a CircuitPython library #AdafruitLearningSystem #Adafruit #CircuitPython @Adafruit
We recently switched all of our CircuitPython libraries to GitHub Actions, which is very different from the previous CI we were using. However, quite a few people have been having issues navigating the new UI, so we decided it would be a good idea to update the Creating and sharing a CircuitPython library to reflect that switch and to include a general tutorial on navigating and using GitHub Actions. We also added a section mentioning common failures that happen when making a PR and making a release, and how to fix them.
8-6-2021 (August 6, 2021) is the Snakiest day of the year and it’s also this year’s CircuitPython Day! The day highlights all things CircuitPython and Python on Hardware. See you there!
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.
