Tethered connection other hardware?

Hi, It seems like Codebug is a collection of open source tools such as Python and Blockly that have been connected to form a comprehensive ready-to-run system, which is why I'm such a fan of it. Tethered mode running text has really unleashed its power for me. My question is, what is the open source...

Answering my own question, it's a Dell issue :x The OTG adapter to the Dell tablet it's connected to has a switch in it between power and data, and it seems to switch between them in a way that tethered mode doesn't like. After removing the power cable and letting it run on battery, the loop ran ove...

Re: serial error when tethering with windows

Yes adding piSerial helped a lot. I also had to specify which port the Codebug was running in, so the code from blockly had to be modified like this: import codebug_tether import serial codebug = codebug_tether.CodeBug("COM4") codebug.set_pixel(2, 2, 1) You'll have to run device manager and check wh...

Re: Connect slave devices on I2C port?

I've been using the ColourStar, it has 27 channels of analog output to its 9 RGB LEDs.
By taping a photoresistor onto the LEDs you can get voltages out.
Plus there's new support for using the expandor pins as I/O.

Re: leg in/outs damaged?

yes now that I've set the outputs I have signals on the oscilloscope thx
btw I saw in the help that setting the pullup disables the touch sense.

Re: New addons: Colourtail, colourstar, glowbugs (RGB LEDs)

About how long is it taking for people to get the colourstar from codebug?
I placed an order via Paypal for one two days ago and haven't heard anything yet,
even a confirmation of the order from them.

Re: leg in/outs damaged?

Ah, found how to do that thanks!
It seemed to by default set the legs as inputs.
Why would I want to set a pullup,
is this for touch sensitivity?

leg in/outs damaged?

I programmed the following and am not getting any outputs on an oscilloscope
http://www.codebug.org.uk/create/codebug/6979/toggle/
plus the following that used to work doesn't any more
http://www.codebug.org.uk/create/codebug/6980/setled/
could the legs have been damaged by ESD?
