Click "Advanced" in the MakeCode drawer to see more choices.
We need to add a package for programming, . Click "Extensions" in the bottom of the drawer and search with "PlanetX" in the dialogue box to download it.
Note: If you met a tip indicating that the codebase will be deleted due to incompatibility, you may continue as the tips say or build a new project in the menu.
Code as below:
You may also download it directly below:
The value of the current soil moisture display on the OLED module.
Download the package and unzip it: PlanetX_MicroPython
Go to Python editor
We need to add enum.py and soilhumidity.py for programming. Click "Load/Save" and then click "Show Files (1)" to see more choices, click "Add file" to add enum.py and soilhumidity.py from the unzipped package of PlanetX_MicroPython.
from microbit import *
from enum import *
from soilhumidity import *
soilhumidity = SOILHUMIDITY(J1)
soilhumidity_value = int(soilhumidity.get_soilhumidity())
The value of the current soil moisture display on the micro:bit.
