This library allows to drive a HX711 on a Raspberry Pi. It just provides the capabilities:

* to set channel an gain and
* to read raw values

**This package requires RPi.GPIO to be installed in Python 3.**

Example implementation:
```
#!/usr/bin/python3
from hx711 import HX711

try:
hx711 = HX711(
dout_pin=5,
pd_sck_pin=6,
channel='A',
gain=64
)

hx711.reset() # Before we start, reset the HX711 (not obligate)
measures = hx711.get_raw_data(num_measures=3)
finally:
GPIO.cleanup() # always do a GPIO cleanup in your scripts!

print("\n".join(measures))
```
