MakeCode Arcade?

Is makecode arcade support for byteboi in the works? Is this up to microsoft or something?

I think I saw mention somewhere that makecode would work with the byteboi, but we couldn’t figure out how to get it to work. There is currently no byteboi option when it comes to selecting hardware. Is there another platform that is similar enough that it will work?

Is there a way to download source code from makecode arcade and use it in circuitblocks?

It looks like makecode only emits source as javascript or python.



Hi @isinglass,

we’ll back to you with an answer as soon as possible.


Hi Tim,

hope you’re doing great! :slight_smile:

Sorry for the late reply.

Unfortunately, ESP32 is not supported by Makecode arcade.
We currently don’t have any plans to add it to our devices and the CircuitBlocks.

If you have any further questions, feel free to contact me.

Hi, on the Byteboi page it does say Makecode is supported. Is that not the case?

Hi @De_Rekenwinkel,

Thank you for your question.

Unfortunately, Makecode arcade is not supported. We’ll remove it from the website and promo materials.
