• 内置模块:标准Python功能的子集,用户不能扩展。
  • 扩展模块:实现了Python功能的一个子集,并提供用户扩展(通过Python代码)。
  • 扩展模块:实现micropython的Python标准库。
  • 硬件驱动模块:特定端口或者硬件驱动的模块,因此不可移植。

Note about the availability of modules and their contents: This documentation in general aspires to describe all modules and functions/classes which are implemented in MicroPython. However, MicroPython is highly configurable, and each port to a particular board/embedded system makes available only a subset of MicroPython libraries. For officially supported ports, there is an effort to either filter out non-applicable items, or mark individual descriptions with “Availability:” clauses describing which ports provide a given feature. With that in mind, please still be warned that some functions/classes in a module (or even the entire module) described in this documentation may be unavailable in a particular build of MicroPython on a particular board. The best place to find general information of the availability/non-availability of a particular feature is the “General Information” section which contains information pertaining to a specific port.

Beyond the built-in libraries described in this documentation, many more modules from the Python standard library, as well as further MicroPython extensions to it, can be found in the micropython-lib repository.


标准的Python库被 “微型化”后,就是micropython标准库。它们仅仅提供了该模块的核心功能。一些模块没有直接使用标准的Python的名字,而是冠以”u”,例如``ujson``代替``json``。也就是说micropython标准库(=微型库),只实现了一部分模块功能。通过他们的名字不同,用户有选择的去写一个Python级模块扩展功能,也是为实现更好的兼容性。


例如,``import json``的话,首先搜索一个``json.py``文件或``json``目录进行加载。如果没有找到,它回退到加载内置``ujson``模块。
