UPDATED GUIDE: CircuitPython LED Animations #AdafruitLearningSystem #Adafruit @Adafruit
Now with more colors!
The CircuitPython LED Animations guide has a new page! The Adafruit CircuitPython LED Animation library has a list of colors built in so you can import a color by name (e.g. RED) and use that name in your code instead of using an RGB or hex value. Up to this point, the only way to know what those colors were was to dig into the library itself or copy from existing examples. We’ve made it easier by adding a Colors page to the LED Animations guide that contains a list of available colors. It also includes a basic example explaining how to use the colors.
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. While Adafruit is not an independent journalistic institution, Adafruit strives to be a fair, informative, and positive voice within the community – check it out here: adafruit.com/editorialstandards
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.
