The QT Py Activity Timer and Hydration Reminder requires some CircuitPython libraries to work. Complete the following steps to get your board ready.

CircuitPython Library Bundle

You'll need to install the Adafruit CircuitPython NeoPixel and Adafruit CircuitPython LIS3DH libraries and their dependencies on your QT Py.

Carefully follow the steps to find and install these libraries from Adafruit's CircuitPython Library Bundle.  Our CircuitPython starter guide has a great page on how to install libraries from the bundle.

You'll want to manually install the following libraries by copying the files to the lib folder on your CIRCUITPY drive:

  • adafruit_bus_device
  • adafruit_lis3dh.mpy
  • adafruit_pypixelbuf.mpy
  • neopixel.mpy

Before continuing make sure your board's lib folder or root filesystem has the adafruit_bus_device, adafruit_lis3dh.mpy, neopixel.mpy, and adafruit_pypixelbuf.mpy files copied over.

Library Install Troubleshooting

If you get an error indicating you have run out of space while copying files over, please refer to the Prevent & Remove MacOS Hidden Files section of the Troubleshooting page for information on resolving the issue.
