User Interface

The EduBlocks user interface is the area on your screen where the CircuitPython program exists. The screen is divided into multiple sections, which have different functions, from picking blocks to code with, to downloading a CircuitPython file. We will go through the different elements of the interface

  • On the right side of the screen is our editing space. This is where we'll drag and drop blocks onto to create our program.

  • The left column is where we'll find all the different blocks with which to choose from.

  • The toolbar on the top allows us to create new programs, open old ones, save current ones, add extensions, load sample programs, change themes and lastly switch between CircuitPython syntax code and blocks.

  • The CircuitPlayground logo at the top will allow you to change modes. EduBlocks supports other platforms like the micro:bit, Raspberry Pi and also Core Python. We won't need to use it in this tutorial, however, you can explore the different platforms if you like.
