Download Mu

There are many ways to install Mu. The simplest is to download the official installer for Windows or Mac OSX. If you find you cannot install Mu because the computer you are using is locked down, you should try out PortaMu: a method of running Mu from a pendrive on Windows or OSX. You can also use Python’s built-in pip tool. Some Linux distributions come with Mu packaged already (and you should use your OS’s package manager to install it). Finally, if you’re on Raspbian (the version of Linux for Raspberry Pi) you can install Mu as a package.

If you’re a developer, you can find the source code on GitHub.

On Linux, in order for Mu to work with the MicroPython based devices you need to ensure you add yourself to the correct permissions group (usually the dialout or uucp groups). Also make sure that your distribution automatically mounts flash devices, or make sure to mount them manually.
