The easiest way to get started. If you're new to Pico, we recommend you read our getting started with Pico tutorial.

โš ๏ธ All of our MicroPython libraries are baked into a batteries-included, custom version of MicroPython which you can grab from releases:

New releases are issued regularly with new libraries, bug fixes to our existing libraries and new features inherited from MicroPython upstream. Be sure to check back!

MicroPython Examples

You can find MicroPython examples for supported sensors, packs and bases in the "micropython/examples" directory:

You can also install MicroPython stubs into Visual Studio Code to give you auto-complete, see:


Advanced users that want to unleash the full power of Pico can use our C++ libraries. If you know what you're doing and want to build your own Pimoroni Pico project then start with the Pimoroni Pico SDK Boilerplate.

C++ Examples

You can find examples for supported sensors, packs and bases in the "examples" directory:

Boilerplate for C++ Projects

We also maintain a C++/CMake boilerplate with GitHub workflows configured for testing and a basic skeleton project.
