Once you've finished setting up your Feather RP2040 with CircuitPython, you can access the code and necessary libraries by downloading the Project Bundle.

To do this, click on the Download Project Bundle button in the window below. It will download to your computer as a zipped folder.

Upload the Code and Libraries to the Feather RP2040

After downloading the Project Bundle, plug your Feather RP2040 into the computer's USB port. You should see a new flash drive appear in the computer's File Explorer or Finder (depending on your operating system) called CIRCUITPY. Unzip the folder and copy the following items to the Feather RP2040's CIRCUITPY drive.

  • lib folder
  • code.py

Your Feather RP2040 CIRCUITPY drive should look like this after copying the lib folder and the code.py file.
