Introduction

Documentation Status Discord Build Status

This high level library provides objects that represent CircuitPlayground hardware.

CircuitPlayground Express

Installation

This driver depends on many other libraries! Please install it by downloading the Adafruit library and driver bundle.

Usage Example

Using it is super simple. Simply import the cpx variable from the module and then use it.

from adafruit_circuitplayground.express import cpx

while True:
    if cpx.button_a:
        print("Temperature:", cpx.temperature)
    cpx.red_led = cpx.button_b

Building locally

To build this library locally you'll need to install the circuitpython-build-tools package.

python3 -m venv .env
source .env/bin/activate
pip install circuitpython-build-tools

Once installed, make sure you are in the virtual environment:

source .env/bin/activate

Then run the build:

circuitpython-build-bundles --filename_prefix adafruit-circuitpython-circuitplayground --library_location .

Sphinx documentation

Sphinx is used to build the documentation based on rST files and comments in the code. First, install dependencies (feel free to reuse the virtual environment from above):

python3 -m venv .env
source .env/bin/activate
pip install Sphinx sphinx-rtd-theme

Now, once you have the virtual environment activated:

cd docs
sphinx-build -E -W -b html . _build/html

This will output the documentation to docs/_build/html. Open the index.html in your browser to view them. It will also (due to -W) error out on any warning like Travis will. This is a good way to locally verify it will pass.
