pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-thermal_printer

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

sudo pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-thermal_printer

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-thermal_printer

Usage Example

See examples/thermal_printer_simpletest.py for a demo of basic printer usage.
