Introduction

Documentation Status Discord Build Status

Adafruit CircuitPython driver for the MLX90393 3-axis magnetometer.

Dependencies

This driver depends on:

Please ensure all dependencies are available on the CircuitPython filesystem. This is easily achieved by downloading the Adafruit library and driver bundle.

Installing from PyPI

On supported GNU/Linux systems like the Raspberry Pi, you can install the driver locally from PyPI. To install for current user:

pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-mlx90939

To install system-wide (this may be required in some cases):

sudo pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-mlx90939

To install in a virtual environment in your current project:

mkdir project-name && cd project-name
python3 -m venv .env
source .env/bin/activate
pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-mlx90939

Usage Example

import time
import busio
import board

import adafruit_mlx90393

I2C_BUS = busio.I2C(board.SCL, board.SDA)
SENSOR = adafruit_mlx90393.MLX90393(I2C_BUS, gain=adafruit_mlx90393.GAIN_1X)

while True:
    MX, MY, MZ = SENSOR.magnetic
    print("[{}]".format(time.monotonic()))
    print("X: {} uT".format(MX))
    print("Y: {} uT".format(MY))
    print("Z: {} uT".format(MZ))
    # Display the status field if an error occured, etc.
    if SENSOR.last_status > adafruit_mlx90393.STATUS_OK:
        SENSOR.display_status()
    time.sleep(1.0)

Building locally

Zip release files

To build this library locally you'll need to install the circuitpython-build-tools package.

python3 -m venv .env
source .env/bin/activate
pip install circuitpython-build-tools

Once installed, make sure you are in the virtual environment:

source .env/bin/activate

Then run the build:

circuitpython-build-bundles --filename_prefix adafruit_circuitpython_mlx90393 --library_location .

Sphinx documentation

Sphinx is used to build the documentation based on rST files and comments in the code. First, install dependencies (feel free to reuse the virtual environment from above):

python3 -m venv .env
source .env/bin/activate
pip install Sphinx sphinx-rtd-theme

Now, once you have the virtual environment activated:

cd docs
sphinx-build -E -W -b html . _build/html

This will output the documentation to docs/_build/html. Open the index.html in your browser to view them. It will also (due to -W) error out on any warning like Travis will. This is a good way to locally verify it will pass.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
