The PXT.IO editor can use packages to add additional components or for extra functionality to the microbit. At present, there are libraries to use a sonar sensor, neopixels and a thermocoupler.
Here’s the full list:
To drive neopixels, you need to add the neopixel package to your program:
Click ‘Add Package’
Select the Package to Use
Use the Package in your Program
- It’s possible to write your own packages. There’s a write up here.. These are added to PXT.io if approved by microsoft (?)
- PXT.io can be run from a local machine.
- Unlike the TouchDevelop platform for the microbit, you cannot add your own packages. To do this, you must install PXT on a local machine.
- A list of the current packages is in a README file on Github.
