DEPRECATED LIBRARY Adafruit_Python_BME280

This library has been deprecated!

we are now only using our circuitpython sensor libraries in python

we are leaving the code up for historical/research purposes but archiving the repository.

check out this guide for using the bme280 with python! https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-bme280-humidity-barometric-pressure-temperature-sensor-breakout

This Python driver allows you to read data from the Adafruit BME280 Breakout on a Raspberry Pi, Pi2 or similar device.

Requirements

This driver requires that you have previously installed the Adafruit_Python_GPIO package.

On Raspbian, you can install this package with the following commands:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install build-essential python-pip python-dev python-smbus git
git clone https://github.com/adafruit/Adafruit_Python_GPIO.git
cd Adafruit_Python_GPIO
sudo python setup.py install

Usage

To read a single set of data points from the BME, connect your Pi to the BME280 breakout using I2C (connect SCL to the SCK pin and SDA to the SDI pin), and run the following command from this folder:

python Adafruit_BME280_Example.py

Credits

This driver is based on the Adafruit_BMP driver by Tony DiCola (Adafruit Industries), with BME280 additions kindly provided by David J. Taylor (www.satsignal.eu).
