Experiment with new instruments for MicroPython

Arduino Lab Editor for MicroPython

On the finish of final yr (November 2022) we introduced preliminary help for MicroPython within the Arduino ecosystem, and continued to quietly work on the toolkit for this language.

We repeatedly broaden the listing of Arduino boards for which a MicroPython firmware is supplied (out there right here).

Moreover, we at the moment are releasing new instruments to assist builders use this language with Arduino boards in addition to third-party ones. These instruments are launched as experimental, below the umbrella of Arduino Labs.

Arduino Lab Editor for MicroPython has now reached model 0.8 with these key options:

  • Improved UI
  • Higher file administration (subfolder help)
  • Extra secure file-system operations for save/add/obtain/run
  • Handle libraries and modules extra simply within the `lib` folder and preserve a cleaner board storage

Arduino Lab Installer for MicroPython

Arduino Lab Installer for MicroPython is a brand new software which simplifies the method of flashing the MicroPython firmware picture on Arduino boards.

Final however not least, we now have created an preliminary listing of MicroPython packages that we think about helpful to be taught and experiment with this language. The listing is revealed as Arduino MicroPython Package deal Index (right here).

Whereas investigating present packages we shortly realized that many had been out there however not at all times up-to-date or in keeping with the most recent MicroPython variations or sure goal {hardware}. Subsequently we determined to  keep a curated listing of helpful packages that are examined to be appropriate with Arduino boards, and most significantly with up to date variations of the official MicroPython.

You’ll be able to browse the listing, obtain the packages from their corresponding Github repository and set up them through Arduino Lab Editor for MicroPython. We plan to launch instruments to simply search, obtain and set up from this package deal index sooner or later. 

Anyone can contribute to the Arduino MicroPython Package deal Index! If you wish to suggest a package deal to be added, comply with the contribution pointers revealed within the repo.

Everybody at Arduino is worked up about this new journey, and we imagine that we will contribute to this ecosystem because it retains maturing and rising its user-base throughout the Maker, Schooling and Skilled areas.

We will’t wait to see what you’ll construct!
