For beginners, users getting started with MicroPython & Pycom as well as Atom text editor users, we recommend the Pymakr Plugin for Atom. This section will help you get started using the Atom Text Editor & Pymakr Plugin.
Please follow these steps to install the Pymakr Plugin:
Atom > Preferences > Install
Pymakrand select the official Pycom Pymakr Plugin.
After installing the Pymakr Plugin, you need to take a few seconds to configure it for first time use. Please follow these steps:

^button, located in the lower right side of the Atom window.
Get Serial Ports. This will copy the serial address of your expansion board to your clipboard.
Settings > Global Settings
>>>, indicating that you are connected
These settings can also be applied on a per project basis by clicking
Project Settings. This will open a JSON file which you can edit to enter your desired settings.
This process is easiest with either a Pycom Expansion Board or a Pytrack/Pysense as the addresses are automatically selected. For external products such as FTDI USB Serial Cables, the serial address may need to be copied manually. Additionally, the reset button on the device may also need to be pressed before a connection message appears.
After installing the Pymakr Plugin, a device may be connected via the telnet interface. Please see the following steps:
wipy-wlan-xxxx, etc.). The password is
192.168.4.1 as the address.
Connectin the Pymakr pane, Pymakr will now connect via telnet.
