Project description

Introduction

Documentation Status Discord Build Status

Save a displayio.Bitmap (and associated displayio.Palette) into a BMP file.

Dependencies

This driver depends on:

CircuitPython 5.0 or later is required.

Please ensure all dependencies are available on the CircuitPython filesystem. This is easily achieved by downloading the Adafruit library and driver bundle.

Installing from PyPI

Note

This library is not available on PyPI yet. Install documentation is included as a standard element. Stay tuned for PyPI availability!

On supported GNU/Linux systems like the Raspberry Pi, you can install the driver locally from PyPI. To install for current user:

pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-bitmapsaver

To install system-wide (this may be required in some cases):

sudo pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-bitmapsaver

To install in a virtual environment in your current project:

mkdir project-name && cd project-name
python3 -m venv .env
source .env/bin/activate
pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-bitmapsaver

Usage Example

import board
import busio
import digitalio
from displayio import Bitmap, Palette
import adafruit_sdcard
import storage
from adafruit_bitmap_saver import save_bitmap

print('Setting up SD card')
spi = busio.SPI(board.SCK, MOSI=board.MOSI, MISO=board.MISO)
cs = digitalio.DigitalInOut(board.SD_CS)
sdcard = adafruit_sdcard.SDCard(spi, cs)
vfs = storage.VfsFat(sdcard)
storage.mount(vfs, "/sd")

WHITE = 0xFFFFFF
BLACK = 0x000000
RED = 0xFF0000
ORANGE = 0xFFA500
YELLOW = 0xFFFF00
GREEN = 0x00FF00
BLUE = 0x0000FF
PURPLE = 0x800080
PINK = 0xFFC0CB

colors = (BLACK, RED, ORANGE, YELLOW, GREEN, BLUE, PURPLE, WHITE)

print('Building sample bitmap and palette')
bitmap = Bitmap(16, 16, 9)
palette = Palette(len(colors))
for i, c in enumerate(colors):
    palette[i] = c

for x in range(16):
    for y in range(16):
        if x == 0 or y == 0 or x == 15 or y == 15:
            bitmap[x, y] = 1
        elif x == y:
            bitmap[x, y] = 4
        elif x == 15 - y:
            bitmap[x, y] = 5
        else:
            bitmap[x, y] = 0

print('Saving bitmap')
save_pixels('/sd/test.bmp', bitmap, palette)
