Take complete projects from the Adafruit Learn System, and transfer them directly to your Bluefruit device without opening a code editor or connecting to a computer! PyLeap is our new app for iOS & iPadOS. It allows you to program a Bluefruit device anywhere with various completed projects, including:
• Sending rainbows to your Bluefruit device
• Loading up sound files
• Using light and sound sensors
PyLeap is available in the App Store today and more updates are on the way! Just make sure you have a Bluefruit device (either Circuit Playground Bluefruit or Adafruit CLUE) to use with it 🙂
Instructions for using the app with CPB are available in the PyLeap Learn Guide– more documentation to come!
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.
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.
