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 or Mac OS X, head over to the Download Mu page and follow the instructions.
It's that simple!
Each Linux distro is a little different, so use this as a guideline!
- 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....
Mu is currently being developed. So there are lots of changes being made! Current versions are available from links at the bottom of this page. However, use at your own risk! These are not stable versions and come with no guarantees of working.
