Is Circuit Playground Bluefruit compatible with code.org

Looking to order for my class, but it's not in the specifics in the description. Is Circuit Playground Bluefruit compatible with code.org?

Thanks!

I'll check with the techs. Have you seen https://code.org/circuitplayground ? It does not specifically mention the bluefruit variant but...

I have and that's what I had intended to get, but they are out of stock and no one can give me a date when they'll be available. I have a grant I was awarded that I need to spend, so I'm looking for other options. It's either the bluefruit or classic that's available right now.

Thanks for checking!

The Circuit Playground Express is available from several of our distributors, for example:
https://www.digikey.com/en/products/det ... 33/7310913
https://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/Ad ... 7vkYqn8%3D
Both have several hundred in stock.

hiya, to follow up - the bluefruit is NOT
however, the Classic IS! and its in stock even when the Express isnot
https://www.adafruit.com/product/3000
the classic *cannot* do circuitpython or makecode, only arduino and code.org

BTW, we also have the 4H CPX in stock. It is only a different color, with different art, and works exactly the same: https://www.adafruit.com/product/4180. It is not reserved only for 4H, so if you need more, feel free to order it.

Circuit Playground started its life as a board with simple requirements - just work with Arduino IDE and Code.org. ... The Express version can run MakeCode, CircuitPython, Arduino, and Code.org CS Discoveries
