gfxlcd 0.7.0

gfxlcd is a handler for graphical lcds: ILI9328, SSD1306, NJU6450, touch panel: AD7843 @ Raspberry Pi.

What it is
===

Library for graphical LCDs for Python on Raspberry Pi. Creates a united interface for supported devices

Supported:

- ili9486 via SPI
- ili9325 via GPIO
- ssd1306 via SPI
- nju6450 via GPIO

And for touch panels:

- ad7843 via SPI, uses irq or not
- ad7846/xpt2046

On NJU and SSD uses buffer to keep current content as help for page operations.

Wiring is below

Demos are in demos directory

LCD initialization
===
## SSD1306
### SPI

from driver.ssd1306.spi import SPI
from driver.ssd1306.ssd1306 import SSD1306
drv = SPI()
o = SSD1306(128, 64, drv)
o.init()

If you want to set your own pins:

drv = SPI()
drv.pins = {
'RST': 13,
'DC': 6,
}
o = SSD1306(128, 64, drv)
o.init()

## NJU6450
### GPIO

from gfxlcd.driver.nju6450.gpio import GPIO
from gfxlcd.driver.nju6450.nju6450 import NJU6450
drv = GPIO()
o = NJU6450(122, 32, drv)
o.init()

Custom wiring:

from gfxlcd.driver.nju6450.gpio import GPIO
from gfxlcd.driver.nju6450.nju6450 import NJU6450
drv = GPIO()
drv.pins = {
'A0': 17,
'E1': 22,
'E2': 21,
'D0': 23,
'D1': 24,
'D2': 25,
'D3': 12,
'D4': 16,
'D5': 20,
'D6': 26,
'D7': 19,
'RST': 5,
}
o = NJU6450(122, 32, drv)
o.init()

## ILI9325
### GPIO

from gfxlcd.driver.ili9325.gpio import GPIO
from gfxlcd.driver.ili9325.ili9325 import ILI9325
drv = GPIO()
o = ILI9325(240, 320, drv)
o.init()

Custom pins:

from gfxlcd.driver.ili9325.gpio import GPIO
from gfxlcd.driver.ili9325.ili9325 import ILI9325
drv = GPIO()
drv.pins = {
'RS': 27,
'W': 17,
'DB8': 22,
'DB9': 23,
'DB10': 24,
'DB11': 5,
'DB12': 12,
'DB13': 16,
'DB14': 20,
'DB15': 21,
'RST': 25,
'LED': None,
'CS': None
}
o = ILI9325(240, 320, drv)
o.init()

## ILI9486
### SPI

from gfxlcd.driver.ili9486.spi import SPI
from gfxlcd.driver.ili9486.ili9486 import ILI9486
drv = SPI()
o = ILI9486(320, 480, drv)
o.rotation = 270
o.init()

Drawing functions
===
draw_pixel(x, y)

draw_line(from_x, from_y, to_x, to_y)

draw_rect(x1, y1, x2, y2)

draw_circle(x1, y1, radius)

draw_arc(x1, y1, radius, from_angle, to_angle

fill_rect(x1, y1, x2, y2)

draw_image(x, y, PIL.Image)

draw_text(x, y, text)

Colours
===
lcd.color = (r, g, b)

lcd.background_color = (r, g ,b)

lcd.threshold = 255 - for images a threshold between black and white (on monochrome)

lcd.transparency_color = [110, 57] #110 - color(s) that are skipped during drawing an image

Fonts
===
Font class implements Font abstract and is a class that has a dictionary with each char:

(..)
[0x3C, 0x66, 0x03, 0x03, 0x73, 0x66, 0x7C, 0x00], # U+0047 (G)
(..)

There is one font for now, 8x8 and named **Font8x8** and is used by default.

Touch panels
===

## AD7843

Constructor:

AD7843(width, height, (int_pin), (callback), (cs_pin))

Can be used with int_pin and cs_pin

def callback(position):
print('(x,y)', position)

touch = AD7843(240, 320, 26, callback, 17)
touch.init()

or without:

touch = AD7843(240, 320)
touch.init()

while True:
try:
time.sleep(0.05)
ret = touch.get_position()
if ret:
print(ret[0], ret[1])

except KeyboardInterrupt:
touch.close()

There is no automatic calibration. It must be done manually.

self.correction = {
'x': 364,
'y': 430,
'ratio_x': 14.35,
'ratio_y': 10.59
}
