Program Lego Mindstorms using RPi

Was anyone aware of this? I've tried to program Lego Mindstorms using the GUI program on a Raspberry Pi. Obviously the Windows application didn't work! Well just today I found a way to make it work (sort of), using Chromebook OS. It turns out LEGO ...

Re: Scratch 3 with Lego Mindstorms EV3

You could also use the (superior, IMHO) https://makecode.mindstorms.com/ to program the EV3.

It's browser-based, so completely cross-platform, and supports all the features of Mindstorms, unlike the more limited Scratch implementation.

Re: How do I program a Sensor with C and no TP libraries

I agree, I started by NQC and NXC for Lego Mindstorms, then C++ for Arduino, and then tried some steps on the Pi using the Geany IDE and wiringPi.

Controlling my Mindstorms ev3 via Python from Raspberry Pi

Hi all,

I want to make a simple Python program that is running on my Raspberry P3 b+ controlling my Lego MIndstorms EV3.

How do I get started? And how should I connect, via Bluetooth? Does someone have a sample script that I can use as a starting point?

Thanx in advance
