Mu is a simple code editor that works with the Adafruit CircuitPython boards. It's written in Python and works on Windows, MacOS, Linux and Raspberry Pi. The serial console is built right in so you get immediate feedback from your board's serial output!
To install Mu for Windows, follow these steps:
Each Linux distro is a little different, so use this as a guideline! These instructions will also work for Mac OS X, but you'll want to use brew instead of apt-get
- Mu require python version 3. If you haven't installed python yet, do so via your command line using something like
sudo apt-get install python3
- You'll also need pip3 (or pip if you only have python3 installed) - try running
pip3 --version. If that didn't work, you ran
sudo apt-get install python3-pip
- Finally, run
pip3 install mu_editor
- You can now run
mudirectly from the command line
Now you're ready to code! Lets keep going....
