The Adafruit MacroPad RP2040 guide has been updated to include a section on using the Adafruit CircuitPython MacroPad library! It includes setup, installation, and examples of using each of the features, including reading key presses, the rotary encoder position and the rotary encoder switch state, light up the NeoPixel LEDs, displaying text and images on the display, and using HID and MIDI! If you’re looking to get started quickly with your MacroPad using CircuitPython, this update is for you!
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.
