DEPRECATED LIBRARY. Adafruit Python ADXL345
This library has been deprecated! We are leaving this up for historical and research purposes but archiving the repository.
We are now only supporting the use of our CircuitPython libraries for use with Python.
Check out the Adafruit CircuitPython ADXL34x library.
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.
