CircuitPython Updater

by A_Command_Blockling on Sun Nov 24, 2019 6:31 pm

Don’t like having to update your boards- especially if you have a lot of them? Well my dad and I made a program that will more or less do it for you. It even updates your libraries for you! And best of all- it’s open source and super flexible. As of writing this, it works and has been tested on macOS and Raspberry Pi.

Features:
- Update CircuitPython and corresponding library bundle
- Default case should be automatic, with reasonable additional flexibility
- Back-up board files before updating and restoring
- Attempt to warn of compatibility concerns related to major versions, pre-release versions, or library re-organization
- Install stable or unstable (pre-release) versions
- Update full library bundle or just the ones installed
- Runs on macOS and Rasbian (and maybe others?)

This is rather wonderful. Thank you.

Would you mind if I experiment and play around at integrating some of the functionality into Mu..?
