[Article] Coding Ox64 BL808 SBC the Drag-n-Drop Way
#1
Remember MakeCode? BBC micro:bit and its Drag-n-Drop App Builder? MakeCode for BBC micro:bit is an awesome creation that’s way ahead of its time (7 years ago!)
- TypeScript Compiler and Arm Assembler in the Web Browser (in JavaScript!)
- Custom Embedded OS (CODAL + Mbed OS)
- micro:bit Simulator in JavaScript

Today 7 years later: How would we redo all this? Maybe with...
(1) Hardware Device: Ox64 BL808 64-bit RISC-V SBC
(2) Embedded OS: Apache NuttX RTOS
(3) JavaScript Engine: QuickJS for NuttX
(4) Web Emulator: TinyEMU WebAssembly for NuttX
(5) C Compiler + Assembler: TCC WebAssembly for NuttX
(6) Device Control: Web Serial API with Term.js

This article explains how we gave MakeCode a wholesome wholesale makeover with NuttX:

This is awesome, should Pine64 consider creating a BL808 based microbit?
