    Well I am relieved. Today I setup a Raspberry Pi3 A+ board. It wears the Qwiic Cap for the Pi, and has the breadboard cable connected to a small one.

    That small one is connected to an OLED display who is now showing me the status of the board as normally shown on a matching one normally available from Adafruit.

    While the Wiring stuff which is installed on this release of Raspbian didn't want to work correctly on the Pi3 A+ board I have, the I2C tools did work and they showed me the display. However thanks to the fact that his tools aren't capable of grokking the new board, I did not see the map shown on this tutorial.

      Normally I don't reply to myself, but the Cap works on the Pi3 B board here as well. Is running with a larger OLED display from the same source.

    I am confused....I looked at several Qwiic sensors , both SparkX and plain red Qwiic sensors and they all have Arduino Libraries... So, I am suppose to install the Arduino IDE (Linux ARM edition) to the RPi 3B+ and run arduino code and not python library code?????

    For high schoolers is it easier to troubleshoot and run a sparkfun blackboard and qwiic sensors with Arduino IDE on a chromebook or Raspberry Pi and Qwiic sensors with a Arduino IDE (ARM installation) ? When will there be python libraries for the Qwiic sensors or do I need teach kids Arduino C and not python to control Qwiic sensors?

    I have a SEN-14347 Spectral Sensor. I notice there is a Arduino Library to use with the Sparkfun Blackboard. Is there a 14347 library (python or Arduino IDE for ARM? install) to use with the Qwiic HAT and Raspberry Pi 3B+ ? I do not see it on Github...
