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

Usage

from rpi_lcd import LCD
from time import sleep

lcd = LCD()

lcd.text('Hello World!', 1)
