Adafruit Python ADXL345
Python code to use the ADXL345 triple-axis accelerometer over I2C with a Raspberry Pi or BeagleBone Black.
To install the library from source (recommended) run the following commands on a Raspberry Pi or other Debian-based OS system:
sudo apt-get install git build-essential python-dev cd ~ git clone https://github.com/adafruit/Adafruit_Python_ADXL345.git cd Adafruit_Python_ADXL345 sudo python setup.py install
Alternatively you can install from pip with:
sudo pip install adafruit-adxl345
Note that the pip install method won't install the example code.
