Python library for driving Pimoroni GFX HAT!
Combining a 128x64 pixel monochrome LCD, 6 touch buttons, a 6 zone RGB backlight and 6 button LEDs the GFX HAT has everything you need to turn your Pi into a controller and status display.
Full install (recommended):
We’ve created an easy installation script that will install all pre-requisites and get your Pan-Tilt HAT up and running with minimal efforts. To run it, fire up Terminal which you’ll find in Menu -> Accessories -> Terminal on your Raspberry Pi desktop, as illustrated below:
In the new terminal window type the command exactly as it appears below (check for typos) and follow the on-screen instructions:
curl https://get.pimoroni.com/gfxhat | bash
If you choose to download examples you’ll find them in /home/pi/Pimoroni/gfxhat/.
Library install for Python 3:
sudo pip3 install gfxhat
Library install for Python 2:
sudo pip2 install gfxhat
If you want to contribute, or like living on the edge of your seat by having the latest code, you should clone this repository, cd to the library directory, and run:
sudo python3 setup.py install
(or sudo python setup.py install whichever your primary Python environment may be)
In all cases you will have to enable the i2c and spi buses.
