Luma.LCD

PCD8544, ST7735, HT1621, UC1701X Display Drivers

Python library interfacing LCD displays with the PCD8544, ST7735, 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.
