To use the internet-connectivity built into your ESP32-S2 with CircuitPython, you must first install a number of libraries. This page covers that process.
Download the Adafruit CircuitPython Bundle. You can find the latest release here:
Download the adafruit-circuitpython-bundle-version-mpy-*.zip bundle zip file, and unzip a folder of the same name. Inside you'll find a lib folder. The entire collection of libraries is too large to fit on the CIRCUITPY drive. Instead, add each library as you need it, this will reduce the space usage but you'll need to put in a little more effort.
At a minimum we recommend the following libraries, in fact we more than recommend. They're basically required. So grab them and install them into CIRCUITPY/lib now!
- adafruit_requests.mpy - A requests-like library for HTTP commands.
- adafruit_dotstar.mpy - Helper library to use DotStar LEDs, often built into the boards so they're great for quick feedback
Once you have added those files, please continue to the next page to set up and test Internet connectivity
