Pimoroni RGB Keypad Ciruitpython USB HID Example all 16 buttons

I wanted to share code i'd adapted from SandyJMacdonald's gist which uses CircuitPython's USB HID libraries and the dotstar library to effect a working USB keypad which enters terminal commands to a PIOS lite system.

Yes -I should have updated here. It only required consolE auto login on the headless pi 3a+ and then the commands registereD. My error - thE Circuitpython USBHID is perfect on Pico and all boards.

Re: Cooling Options for RPi4 with PoE Hat

I took away the little fan from the PoE HAT and replaced with a Noctua 5v 40mm fan directing air through the hole, kept my Pi nice and cool and importantly quiet. It meant securing only one corner since the fan is bigger but was very stable in place. Have since moved away from PoE HAT for RPi4 and g...

Thank you for the reply. Do you have or use an overclocked Pi 4B 8GB and if so what are your overclock settings?
On my 8GB, I'm at

I'm actually seeing some odd behaviour from my POE HAT (albeit I replaced the fan with a Noctua 5v).

Re: best, safest and easiest way to connect pi 3 b+ with arduino uno

The UART on UNO is I think 5v, so you need to shift it to 3.3v, or connect UNO to PI via USB B --> Micro USB A and use the AMA TTY. Depends - if you have a Pi 1 or Pi Zero you should be able to power from the UNO if you are feeding it with a strong current source. I would think if you have the know ...

Depends on your project - Are you sending commands over the AMA TTY to the Arduino or can you send them over UART TX/RX ? The solution will depend on what the programmatic problem is ? Do you need to gather data ? Do you need to send conditional commands back and forth ? Are you wanting to exploit t...

You could send WOL packets to an ESP8266 or ESP32 on port 9 via a switch that applies 5V power to the Pi GPIO, programmed in Arduino, but given (as stated many times above) the Pi itself doesn't support S1, S2, S3 etc, its a proof of concept, not a solution.Its a similar approach to above someone su...

Logging into the GUI with a user ID other than 'pi' still causes the loss of the task bar.
But that's probably (or definitely) not attributable to the bootloader right ?
