I started my Hybrid Pedal project. This is the very first step in the process: preparing my machine to do Raspberry Pi Pico programming in MicroPython.
The original guides use mostly Linux and IDEs that I’m not familiar with. Since I am using Windows, I decided to prepare a short video on how to set it up and install various software that is needed on Windows.
If you want to keep an eye on the progress I’m making, be sure to subscribe to the channel.
Here’s the video:
The process in short is:
- Install VS Code
- Install Python extension for VS Code
- Install Python
- Install Pico-Go Extension for VS Code
- Install IntelliCode Extension for VS Code
- Install firmware for your Raspberry Pi Pico board
- Do some coding ?
The whole process takes between 10 and 30 minutes … depending on whether you’re talking to yourself as you’re doing it or not ?.
This is just an accompanying page for the video. It really is an easy watch, especially if you haven’t used VS Code, or Python, or anything else mentioned here, it is worth having a look.
