Hi all,


As promised during last Wednesday’s workshop some reference info.


Everything about the workshops for WON and Sensemakers:   the Powerpoint presentation lives here, as do the libraries and demo programs)


Official MicroPython documentation:  and


And the MicroPython sources are here:

        (for the esp8266 start in …/ports/esp8266 and the there) For the standard libraries.  Take care, many are null and serve only to mirror standard c-python.



Rshell file manager and terminal sources and manual are here:     but for an install just use:   pip install rshell

I use rshell in combination with vs-code ( as my editor/ide for:

(Micro)Python with the Python plug-in,

C and C++,  including the Arduino Plugin,

Javascript / Typescript,



                It can do a lot, but the learning curve is steep.


uPyCraft ‘ide’ lives here:




Also got a tip for the Thonny ‘ide’.  Didn’t try it myself yet.  Seems to have MicroPython support for the BBC Microbit.  Don’t know if it supports ESP8266 or 32 currently.



And for the Circuit Python variant browse



Best regards, Gijs
