Other ways to use your micro:bit

Discover the alternative editors

Did you know you can program your micro:bit using Scratch or C++ ?

As well as our official micro:bit editors, we have a huge community of people making fantastic tools for programming, interacting and generally playing with the micro:bit.

The editors on this page are not officially supported by the Micro:bit Educational Foundation, so please look for the ‘support’ details in the editors themselves for any questions.
