I²C LCD library for RaspberryPi

Project description

This library supports LCD text displays (20x4, 16x2 and other) via I²C converter.

It requires the python-smbus package installed on your Raspberry Pi and enabled ARM I2C interface.


Get the package from pypi:

pip install rpi-lcd


from rpi_lcd import LCD
from time import sleep

lcd = LCD()

lcd.text('Hello World!', 1)
lcd.text('Raspberry Pi', 2)
lcd.text('is really', 3, 'center')
lcd.text('awesome', 4, 'right')


rpi-lcd handles multiline texts:

from rpi_lcd import LCD

lcd = LCD()
lcd.text('This is a message that has more than 20 chars and does not fit in one line', 1)
