An internet NPR radio with an Adafruit PyPortal and CircuitPython #PyPortal #CircuitPython @NPR @jefforulez
PyPortal NPR Station: use an Adafruit PyPortal to show what’s currently playing on an NPR station.
The project defaults to member-supported WBGO 88.3 FM Newark Public Radio, a premiere jazz public radio station.
The project is programmed in CircuitPython – drop the files on the device, which presents as a USB flash drive, and it starts running! The app uses an SD card for local storage when it downloads and displays album art. Of course the station can be changed to one of your choosing.
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.
