CircuitPython library for L3GD20 9-DOF absolute orientation IMU fusion breakout.
This driver depends on:
Please ensure all dependencies are available on the CircuitPython filesystem. This is easily achieved by downloading the Adafruit library and driver bundle.
Of course, you must import the library to use it:
This driver takes an instantiated and active I2C object (from the busio or the bitbangio library) as an argument to its constructor. The way to create an I2C object depends on the board you are using. For boards with labeled SCL and SDA pins, you can:
from busio import I2C from board import SDA, SCL i2c = I2C(SCL, SDA)
Once you have the I2C object, you can create the sensor object:
sensor = adafruit_l3gd20.L3GD20_I2C(i2c)
And then you can start reading the measurements:

Zip release files
To build this library locally you’ll need to install the circuitpython-build-tools package.
python3 -m venv .env source .env/bin/activate pip install circuitpython-build-tools
Once installed, make sure you are in the virtual environment:
Then run the build:
circuitpython-build-bundles --filename_prefix adafruit-circuitpython-l3gd20 --library_location .
Sphinx is used to build the documentation based on rST files and comments in the code. First, install dependencies (feel free to reuse the virtual environment from above):
python3 -m venv .env source .env/bin/activate pip install Sphinx sphinx-rtd-theme
Now, once you have the virtual environment activated:
cd docs sphinx-build -E -W -b html . _build/html
This will output the documentation to docs/_build/html. Open the index.html in your browser to view them. It will also (due to -W) error out on any warning like Travis will. This is a good way to locally verify it will pass.
