Macros, Python and a Hotkey Keyboard #MacroPad #CircuitPython @webjessc
Web Jess documents a customizable macropad with various media controls, shortcuts, and macros.
You can make any key type “Hello World!” any time you press it. This is really just a simple example, though. You can pretty much set up any key to do anything (in the realm of keyboard and mouse commands at least) The possibilities feel endless, so I’ll likely come back to this project periodically.

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.
