prometheus_express is a Prometheus SDK and rudimentary HTTP server for CircuitPython and MicroPython boards that support the socket library. It runs on the Adafruit Feather devices and supports multiple networking Featherwings.

The official Prometheus client for Python may work on CircuitPython as well and offers far more complete features, including support for the push gateway.

This library should work with any available socket device, and has been tested with the Wiznet5500 and LAN8720 drivers.

It may also work with the other network FeatherWings:
