A module like the Maple Mini has almost no use on its own. It’s really barebones. It needs to be connected to peripheral hardware so it can interact with the world. It’s something I do so often that I’ve developed efficient ways to go from a simple module to a board. This is an example of how to get started. It’s by no means the only way or even the best way, it’s just a way that works really well and saves me time. Your mileage may vary.
