Documentation Status Discord Build Status

This is a full featured CircuitPython Library for the RA8875 that included all of the hardware accelerated drawing functions as the original Arduino library. A lot of the functionality has been streamlined with a focus on ease of use that is still flexible enough to make full use of the hardware. For instace, Graphics and Text mode switching is now automatic and handled in the background.


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.

Usage Example

See examples/ and examples/ for examples of the module's usage. When running the bmptest, be sure to upload the blinka.bmp image to the root folder as well.


Contributions are welcome! Please read our Code of Conduct before contributing to help this project stay welcoming.

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-ra8875 --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.
