The Feather Sense is packed full of sensors. Now that you have CircuitPython installed on your Feather Sense, you'll need to install a base set of CircuitPython libraries to use the features of the board with CircuitPython.

Follow these steps to get the necessary libraries installed.

Installing CircuitPython Libraries on your Feather Sense

If you do not already have a lib folder on your CIRCUITPY drive, create one now.

Then, download the CircuitPython library bundle that matches your version of CircuitPython from CircuitPython.org.

The bundle downloads as a .zip file. Extract the file. Open the resulting folder.

Open the lib folder found within.

Once inside, you'll find a lengthy list of folders and .mpy files. To install a CircuitPython library, you drag the file or folder from the bundle lib folder to the lib folder on your CIRCUITPY drive.

Copy the following folders and files from the bundle lib folder to the lib folder on your CIRCUITPY drive:

  • adafruit_apds9960
  • adafruit_bmp280.mpy
  • adafruit_bus_device
  • adafruit_lis3mdl.mpy
  • adafruit_lsm6ds.mpy
  • adafruit_register
  • adafruit_sht31d.mpy
  • neopixel.mpy

Your lib folder should look like the image on the left. These libraries will let you run the demos in the Feather Sense guide.
