Adafruit MacroPad

There was a brief reference to the MacroPad primarily as a midi device.

I thought it would be handy to quickly invoke macros by hotkey triggers. so got one to experiment with.

The MacroPad

  • Can not only use the modifier key combinations, but also recognises function keys up to f24 (although it appears km will only recognise function keys upto f20).
  • Has a small LCD.
  • Has very simple scripting via circuitpython parameters.
  • A rotary selector offering a wide range of code combinations.

Only early days in experimenting with it (and KM) but certainly simpler for my memory and quicker than invoking by name or via Alfred

Do you have a photo or link to the one that you choose to experiment with?

Got mine from Pimoroni (in the UK).

This is the adafruit article.

Very simple to build - lego level.

Pretty simple to configure (when I follow the syntax rules properly :roll_eyes:) - no worse than JSON.

Thanks @JohnG!
