Code Speed.

by Sandy_Crack on Fri Oct 01, 2021 7:41 am

Im curious does makecode run significantly slower than Python ?

I've got a neopixel project that is running slower than I would like on a Circuit playground express and I'm curious to know if its worth learning python to get any significant changes to it speed ?

Ive since found maker.makecode so I can use a Bluefruit Circuit playground and its runs faster most likely because of its 64 Mhz process compared with the CPE's 48Mhz
Ive also just ordered a M4 Feather so I'm hoping that its 120Mhz processor will lead to a significant speed increase.

Thanks in Advance

Rich

MakeCode runs fast, compiled code on the board. Perhaps there's something in the code block flow that is causing an issue. Can you share an example that's running slower than expected?
