PCD8544, ST7735, ST7567, HT1621, UC1701X Display Drivers
Python library interfacing LCD displays with the PCD8544, ST7735, ST7567, HT1621 and UC1701X driver using SPI on the Raspberry Pi and other linux-based single-board computers - it provides a Pillow-compatible drawing canvas, and other functionality to support:
- scrolling/panning capability,
- terminal-style printing,
- state management,
- color/greyscale (where supported),
- dithering to monochrome
All modules can be picked up on ebay with a breakout board for a few pounds.
Full documentation with installation instructions and examples can be found on https://luma-lcd.readthedocs.io.
Version 2.0.0 was released on 2 June 2019: this came with the removal of the luma.lcd.aux.backlight class. The equivalent functionality has now been subsumed into the device classes that have a backlight capability.
