Want to change the Blinky program to display different colors, or make it play a sound? Editing the program on your Circuit Playground is super easy! 

Extracting your code from the Circuit Playground

The .uf2 file (CURRENT.UF2) you created by clicking on the Compile button in MakeCode also contains the source code of your program!

You can open this file in MakeCode by dragging and dropping it into the browser to edit it. 


You can share your code by clicking on the share button. After confirmation, MakeCode will create a short unique URL for your code. Anyone with that URL will be able to reload the code.

These URLs can also be used to embed the editor your blog or web pages! Just copy paste the URL in your text editor and (if it supports oEmbed) it will automatically load it in your page.
