Emulator / display preview for Badger 2040

Hi there - I’ve ordered a couple of Badger 2040s to experiment with, but I suspect they’ll take a good week or two to arrive. In the meantime I was hoping to try and follow a few of the tutorials, but in looking through the Getting started with Raspberry Pi Pico tutorial, it looks like the hardware is actually required to see what’s being displayed on the screen. Is there such a thing as an emulator or alternative way of previewing what’ll be displayed on the device?


This depends on your choice of programming language. If you use CircuitPython, you could use Blinka on your PC with a pygame-backend emulating any screen-size you want. I don’t know of anything similar for MicroPython or C++.
