Penpot – an open source web-based prototyping platform, now in beta @penpotapp
Penpot is the first Open Source design and prototyping platform meant for cross-domain teams. Non dependent on operating systems, Penpot is web based and works with open web standards (SVG). For all and empowered by the community.
Penpot is now available in the beta version!
Why do we move to beta now?
Believe, love, joy… these are words that keep popping up in our minds while we’re developing Penpot.
Since its public launch in February 2021, Penpot capabilities and benefits have grown at an astonishing fast rate. For the past few weeks we constantly came back to one recurring question: Is Penpot really an alpha product anymore?
We went through key aspects such as stability “check”, features “check”, adoption “check!” and a serious SaaS robust offering “megacheck!”

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.
