I enjoy the SAMD support. It will be possible to upload MicroPython on Feather M0 Express (from Adafruit) instead of CircuitPython.
However, it will be necessary to compile the SAMD firmware...

I've been able to run the MicroPython SAMD port on a Trinket M0 and an Itsy Bitsy M4. But, to be clear, at this stage it's a bare-bones port - nothing really works except the MicroPython interpreter, UART and the REPL. There's not even Pin support yet.

I'm hoping to put a little effort into this port as it would open up a large number of boards (primarily from Adafruit but the SAMD's are generally pretty popular!) to MicroPython. My loose goal is to integrate samd-peripherals (this library was developed for - and is used by - CircuitPython) and start pulling in features starting with Pin.

If anyone else is interested in helping out with this port please reach out and maybe we can co-ordinate our efforts...

Hi Mattyt, Cannot promise yet to help in the C portage (it would be the first time I do compile a MicroPython firmware) but I can help in testing the release on Adafruit Board... Do you know if the SAMD support will cover the Metro Grand Central? That would be awesome.

The Grand Central M4 Express is a SAMD51 so yes, it will be a goal to make the port work on it! I don't have one so it'll be great if you could test with yours. :)

I have previously had help getting 1.11 out of github. How do I get v1.12 to overwrite my current 1.11 "pull".

This works for me:

Code: Select all

git pull origin master
git submodule update --init
