Awesome MicroPython list, pfalcon's version

Post by pfalcon » Thu Nov 22, 2018 5:55 am

TL;DR: https://github.com/pfalcon/awesome-micropython

It occurs to me that somewhere around autumn of this year, MicroPython has finally achieved on its goal - being a solid choice and alternative in the area of "small languages". There's something interesting popping up every week, and I myself finding that I'm losing track of things. So, I seriously started thinking of moving my scattered notes in some central place, formatting it as an "awesome list" per the latest fashion. I actually googled up if someone did before. Adafruit of course maintain it for CircuitPython, but that's just a small walled garden in MicroPython universe. I found a couple of other projects, but they didn't seem to be actively maintained, with just a handful of commits, apparently following the idea "let me start, and then people will flow in who'll do rest of work". That never works. Actually, I never saw them announced on the forum, and even search didn't turn up anything.

So, pressured by more news and questions coming it, I decided to give it a try myself. Besides, as a developer of 40% of (changes to) MicroPython, and 95% of micropython-lib, I consider I may have a unique perspective at it ;-). I however decided to police myself with actually maintaining it for a bit before announcing. Well, 30 commits and 4 weeks later, I still have a lot of stuff to add to it, and desire to do it, so here it goes: https://github.com/pfalcon/awesome-micropython . The focus so far is to capture library coverage of the IT space, other stuff is coming later definitely too.

here is the awesome-list that pfalcon referred to for circuitpython (contributions welcome, all are welcome):
https://github.com/adafruit/awesome-circuitpython

the weekly python on hardware newsletter featured pfalcon's "awesome micropython" list a few weeks ago:
https://www.adafruitdaily.com/2018/11/0 ... sf-python/

the first micropython one is here (also linked in the newsletter):
https://github.com/mcauser/awesome-micropython

anyone can contribute to the community newsletter, it's on github:
https://github.com/adafruit/circuitpyth ... newsletter

there are a few thousands subscribers already and it covers all things python on hardware. here's the latest one:
https://www.adafruitdaily.com/2018/11/2 ... -adafruit/

we also do a video / podcast version each week, the youtube playlist is here:
https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=P ... t6H81TdDev

there is also our weekly circuitpython meeting on discord, playlist here:
https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=P ... p0ht8yNgg0

and the circuitpython discord channel is here:

we're really thankful for the growing community and helping to get python on hardware in many places together.

happy thanksgiving!

cheers,

Great work. Thank you.

I think uPyCraft and Jupyter MicroPython Kernel are both good tools for micropython

added uPyCraft (thanks for that!) in the weekly newsletter and also added another link to the updated awesome-micropython
