CircuitPython works on a range of hardware including microcontrollers and also with single board computers and desktop Python (both with the Adafruit Blinka compatibility layer).
CircuitPython 8 will expand the capabilities of CircuitPython, making it a fabulous choice to run Python on a multitude of hardware devices. You can follow the development releases on GitHub. And discussion of CircuitPython is done on the Adafruit Discord server.
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.
