UPDATED GUIDE: Welcome to CircuitPython: PyCharm and CircuitPython #AdafruitLearningSystem #Adafruit @adafruit
The Welcome to CircuitPython guide is going through a massive update, and along with it comes an entirely updated PyCharm and CircuitPython page!
This page now walks through best practices for using PyCharm for CircuitPython development. It includes tips like disabling the auto-save feature, creating a project on your local system drive and adding CIRCUITPY as a content root, and connecting to the serial console inside the Terminal pane.
If you’re interested in using PyCharm to work with CircuitPython code, and want to get the most out of your IDE, check out this update!
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.
