Milestone: 300 Adafruit provided Open Source CircuitPython Libraries Available #CircuitPython #OpenSource @Adafruit
A major milestone! Adafruit has written 300 Adafruit libraries for interfacing to CircuitPython – drivers, helper functions & more.
Adafruit invests time and money into providing free, open source code to help you use Adafruit products and much more, in the hope you buy some of your project gear from Adafruit. You can support Adafruit’s efforts by buying Adafruit products.
The Adafruit CircuitPython Library Bundle contain the current libraries available for CircuitPython. CircuitPython libraries are separate files designed to work with CircuitPython code.
CircuitPython programs require a lot of information to run. CircuitPython is so simple to use because most of this information is processed in the background and stored in libraries. Some libraries are built into CircuitPython. Others are downloaded and stored on your CIRCUITPY drive in a folder called lib.
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.
