Develop your CircuitPython code in a browser with two tools #CircuitPython #Bluetooth @River___Wang
Many folks have desired a web-based development environment for CircuitPython. Web-based eliminates the need for installing software and provides a unified interface. It definitely is possible with newer web technologies in modern builds of the Chrome web browser. GitHub user Mr-Coxall first started this trend two years ago. The idea was picked up by GitHub user sensebox 8 months ago.
Most recently, River Wang, GitHub user urfdvw, has made progress with a rather nice web based editor fittingly named “CircuitPython Online IDE”. Available in English and Chinese, the project is well documented and has many features. There are serial console and plot output capabilities.
And if you’d like to try coding CircuitPython via Bluetooth? Adafruit has been working on a new web-based Code Editor for CircuitPython. This allows you to edit files directly on your Bluetooth devices using just the Chrome web browser without installing any additional software.
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.
