Adafruit CPX (Circuit Playground Express)

Dunno if anyone here has already tried this trinket, but I just received mine, and am really impressed... It has an incredible lot of stuff built-in for a 5cm diameter round board : two user buttons (with pullups), plus reset, a two-mode slide switch, green (power) and red (addressable) LEDs, batter...

Re: The "Programming with MicrroPython" book is out!

Thanks for the heads-up deshipu, looks quite interesting !

PS: you have two different typos in the two occurrences of "MicroPython" in your text, and the second one is especially fun :-)

Re: font454.py — a tiny 4x5 pixel antialiased font for low-resolution displays

Thanks for the picture bitninja !
It appears that Deshipu has done an incredible job (yet again), but it appears a lot more clearly in your real-life example :-)

In a recent conference Damien said that Pyboard 2.0 had suffered setbacks and delays (supplier problems), but it was coming soon...
Any news about that ?

Re: MicroPython's maturity and future

@Dave & Peter : thank you both for the confirmation(s)! I suspected as much, actually, but I wanted to make sure I wasn't missing an easier way to drive an USB-HID client device under Python :-) Last winter I spent quite some time trying implementing various such HOWTOs on a raspberry Pi W, and fail...

Re: MicroPython's maturity and future

Re: uPyCraft(micropython IDE) released

Re: Basic USB HID test failing...

Ah, well spotted, sorry for the confusion ! Yes, that dict used in sendchr is the one defined in kb_map.py , so the same name should be used. What happened is that I use an AZERTY layout, so in the original code it was called kbdfr everywhere... For the Wiki entry I changed it to kbmap to make it mo...
