Python code to use the TCS34725 color sensor with the Raspberry Pi & BeagleBone Black.

Project description


This library has been deprecated!

We are now only using our CircuitPython sensor libraries in Python.

We are leaving the code up for historical/research purposes but archiving the repository.

Check out this guide for using the TCS34725 with Python!

Python code to use the TCS34725 color sensor with the Raspberry Pi & BeagleBone Black.


To install the library from source (recommended) run the following commands on a Raspberry Pi or other Debian-based OS system:

sudo apt-get install git build-essential python-dev
cd ~
git clone
cd Adafruit_Python_TCS34725
sudo python install

Alternatively you can install from pip with:
