I realize that solutions exist for having an RPi emulate an HID device (Can the Pi Emulate an HID device with via USB?) but are there any existing API's that can achieve the same thing as https://github.com/adafruit/circuitpython but specifically for RPi's? Python would be most convenient then followed by Node.js

Thanks in advance for thoughts and insight!

  • What can CircuitPython achieve re HID emulation? I think to need to clarify what you want in more detail. BTW: it's possible to install CircuitPython on the Pi

  • CircuitPython appears to just make things easy using human-readable pseudo code instead of having to reference the byte data that needs to be sent to the HID device, imo. May I ask where it is documented that CircuitPython will work on a Pi? It is not listed as a supported board Commented Sep 14, 2018 at 14:12
  • Adafruit learning website: learn.adafruit.com/circuitpython-on-raspberrypi-linux/overview . I have it installed in a virtual environment, but have only one a little test so far.

  • I tried to find what you just sent, idk how I how I missed it, thank you! Commented Sep 14, 2018 at 15:39
  • Do you know if these examples would work on a Pi0, @Dirk? circuitpython.readthedocs.io/projects/hid/en/latest/… Commented Sep 17, 2018 at 12:18
