  • If you are on a PC, you can try the Visual Studio Code editor with the Pymakr plugin. I am on Windows 10 and Atom seems a bit touchy, especially with the serial connection, e.g. sometimes I have to kick the tires--manually restart the device (LoPy) to get the serial connection working.

    I have had a more consistent experience with VS Code and the Pymakr plugin. The serial connection seems a bit more stable on Windows 10. Also, it just seems to work better with multiple serial connections (via USB).

    Another issue I had was that the jumpers were not on tight. I bought different jumpers to put on the TX and RTS jumper connections--if you are using the expansion board (I highly recommend with a LoPy).
