Keyboard firmware, configured in Ruby, for RP2040 chips #Keyboards #Ruby #RaspberryPiPico #RP2040
PRK Firmware is a framework for DIY-keyboards written and configured in PicoRuby which is an alternative mruby implementation targeting on one-chip microcontroller. It is open software under an MIT license.
A “keymap” can be configured in Ruby which is a concise, readable and happy language
RP2040 is the target platform microcontroller
You can write your own “action” which will be invoked when you tap or hold a key
The following boards have been confirmed to work as of now:
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.
