CircuitPython driver for TFT Touch screens based on RA8875.

Project description


Documentation Status Discord Build Status

This is a full featured CircuitPython Library for the RA8875 that included all of the hardware accelerated drawing functions as the original Arduino library. A lot of the functionality has been streamlined with a focus on ease of use that is still flexible enough to make full use of the hardware. For instace, Graphics and Text mode switching is now automatic and handled in the background.


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-ra8875

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

sudo pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-ra8875

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-ra8875

Usage Example

See examples/ and examples/ for examples of the module’s usage. When running the bmptest, be sure to upload the blinka.bmp image to the root folder as well.
