UPDATED GUIDES: Adafruit MagTag and Adafruit Metro ESP32-S2 #Adafruit #AdafruitLearningSystem #WebSerial #ESPTool #Python #MagTag #ESP32S2 @Adafruit @MakerMelissa
The Adafruit MagTag and Adafruit Metro ESP32-S2 guides have been updated with a new page on using the Web Serial ESPTool so you don’t even need to install Python to program your ESP32-S2 board. This tool is not as complete as the official ESPTool, but more complete than the Adafruit miniesptool. The WebSerial version supports stub loading which means you can upload files that are up to the entire size of the flash memory as well as supporting full chip erasing.
The WebSerial ESPTool was designed to be a web-capable option for programming ESP32-S2 boards. It allows you to erase the contents of the microcontroller and program up to 4 files at different offsets.
This tool is a good alternative to folks who cannot run Python esptool.py on their computer or are having difficulty installing or using esptool.py
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.
