On Gesture

Start an event handler (part of the program that will run when something happens) This handler works when you do a gesture (like shaking the Calliope mini).

input.onGesture(Gesture.Shake,() => {


  • gesture means the way you hold or move the Calliope mini. This can be shake, logo up, logo down, screen up, screen down, tilt left, tilt right, free fall, 3g, or 6g.

Example: random number

This program shows a number from 2 to 9 when you shake the Calliope mini.

input.onGesture(Gesture.Shake,() => {
    let x = randint(2, 9)
