CircuitPython helper library provides higher level objects to control motors and servos.
This helper library provides higher level objects to control motors and servos based on one or more PWM outputs.
The PWM outputs can be any object that have a 16-bit duty_cycle attribute. Its assumed that the frequency has already been configured appropriately. (Typically 50hz for servos and 1600hz for motors.)
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.
Installing from PyPI
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-motor
To install system-wide (this may be required in some cases):
sudo pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-motor
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-motor
Contributions are welcome! Please read our Code of Conduct before contributing to help this project stay welcoming.
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-motor --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.
Download the file for your platform. If you're not sure which to choose, learn more about installing packages.
