This library has been deprecated!

we are now only using our circuitpython sensor libraries in python, they work great and are easier to maintain

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

check out this guide for using the vcnl4010 with python! https://learn.adafruit.com/using-vcnl4010-proximity-sensor
