#CircuitPython2022 from @CycleMatch

Since my post on New Year’s day we’ve had one person let us know what they’d like to see for CircuitPython 2022.

Checkout out CycleMatch’s (aka kmatch) thoughts on Twitter:

#CircuitPython2022 and my #CircuitPython2021 highlights (mostly graphics related), a thread:
2021 highlights:
– Birth of bitmaptools in core, starting with rotozoom and growing, yay!
– Added graphical widgets for displays + touch response
– Widgets: Button, Switch, Progress bar, Dial gauge, Cartesian graph, Flip Input, Icon
– Displayio_Layout to simplify widget layout
– I see growing use and examples for vectorio, an awesome set of tools for graphical shapes
– A learn guide on optimizing CP memory use
– Tangential to CP: Demo of TinyLogicFriend, a logic analyzer running on Cortex-M4 that connects to@sigrokproject for analyzing I2C and others
2022 wishes:
– Introductory examples of graphical Widgets and input response handling
– more cool Widgets (especially scrolling text box, a way to organize multiple sets of widgets onto pages with a easy way to swap between pages)
– Expansion of vectorio examples(!)
Special hardware request for 2022: a reasonably-priced capacitive multitouch capable display handling at least two touches (including drag, rotation and zoom), witha super fast display interface and board. That’s a lot to ask for!
Thanks to Kevin for kicking off #CircuitPython2022! TinyLogicFriend is very cool and hasn’t gotten the attention it deserves.
I’ll be reflecting on #CircuitPython2021 in my Deep Dive this week and discussing my 2022 goals next week.

#CircuitPython2022 is our annual reflection on the state of CircuitPython. We’d love to hear from you too! See the kick-off post for all of the details.

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.

Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.

Join us every Wednesday night at 8pm ET for Ask an Engineer!
