Prerequisites

If the I2C Port expander MCP23017 or MCP23008 is being used, the Adafruit Python library for I2C and the MCP will need to be installed.

You can clone the whole library like so:

git clone https://github.com/adafruit/Adafruit-Raspberry-Pi-Python-Code.git

or the two files needed can be pulled out, Adafruit_I2C.py & Adafruit_MCP230xx.py.

Install

Files Included

README.txt
LICENSE.txt
setup.py
matrix_keypad/
    __init__.py
    matrix_keypad_RPi_GPIO.py
    matrix_keypad_MCP230xx.py
    matrix_keypad_demo.py
    matrix_keypad_demo2.py

Usage

See the demo scripts included to see this all in action.

To call the library select which one you intend to use and use the correct line:

from matrixKeypad_MCP230xx import keypad

or:

from matrixKeypad_RPi_GPIO import keypad

Then name the library so it is easier to reference later:

kp = keypad()

It is possible to just check to see if a digit is currently pressed.:

checkKeypad = kp.getKey()

Or a simple function to call the keypad library and loop through it waiting for a digit press

def digit():
    # Loop while waiting for a keypress
    digitPressed = None
    while digitPressed == None:
        digitPressed = kp.getKey()
    return digitPressed
