If you are connecting to a new device, follow the steps below. Otherwise click the Reconnect button.
Web Bluetooth is currently only supported in Chromium-based browsers.
To get the best experience, enable the experimental about://flags/#enable-web-bluetooth-new-permissions-backend flag.
On Linux only, enable the experimental about://flags/#enable-experimental-web-platform-features flag. However be careful as it would be risky to browse the web whith this flag turned on as it enables many other experimental web platform features. Starting with Chromium version 100, enable the about://flags/#enable-web-bluetooth safer flag instead.
CircuitPython boards with nrf chips need CircuitPython 7.0.0 or newer. The first time a device is connected to your host, you'll need to enable public broadcasting by pressing reset when the faster, blue blink is happening on start up. The device will reset and the second, blue blink will be solid when done successfully.
Once you are connected, we need to prompt a bond. Without this CircuitPython boards with USB won't continue to advertise after a hard reset or powerloss. This button also loads code.py from the device so click it even if the device has been connected before.
Web Workflow is only available on CircuitPython boards with ESP chips running CircuitPython 8.0.0-beta.6 or newer.
To connect the device to your network, you will need to set up the settings.toml file on your device and add your WiFi credentials. The CircuitPython Web Workflow Code Editor Quick Start Guide has more details how to create this file.
Once your device is connected to your Local Area Network, you can navigate to http://circuitpython.local/code/. This opens a page on your device that loads this website onto the device and to avoid any cross domain security issues.
Web Serial is currently only supported in Chromium-based browsers.
For versions of Google Chrome between versions 78-89, Web Serial needs to manually be enabled. On recent browsers, this feature is enabled by default. If you are on an older version of the browser, you may be able to enable Web Serial with the about://flags/#enable-experimental-web-platform-features flag.
Connect to the Serial Port of your device. At this time, it will need to be enabled to continue.
Select the root folder of your device. This is typically the CIRCUITPY Drive on your computer unless you renamed it. If your device does not appear as a drive on your computer, it will need to have the USB Host functionality enabled.
