Upgrading from Adafruit's Tutorial #9
Hi, I'm new to the Raspberry Pi, and I've recently implemented the display using Adafruit's tutorial, which can be found here: https://learn.adafruit.com/connecting-a-16x32-rgb-led-matrix-panel-to-a-raspberry-pi/overview
This code is based off an old fork of your code: https://github.com/Boomerific/rpi-rgb-led-matrix
I've successfully built a nice display, and even made a nice Sinatra website that powers the board's images. I'm looking to upgrade to a 32x32 display and consider using text for my next one, which is how I tracked down the original, here. Unfortunately, switching to your code, everything is upside-down!
I'm going to be working with some people in a local Maker space, and I'm wondering if there's a simple way to flip the output, so that people who complete the Adafruit tutorial, can upgrade to your constantly evolving repo, over being stuck on the other?
(Someone should tell the Adafruit people that the current code is much more ... current :) )
You could just implement a Canvas that does something like 32-y or something (don't know which side is flipped for you). But should be a matter of a couple of lines of codes and things just work.
agreed. If I didn't already mount it to a piece of wood, and heatshrink everything this would be easier.
Thanks for your input. I'm just going to build another one (I could fork your code and make my changes, but then I'm in the same boat as Adafruit, with an aging fork). I want to get it so others can follow, because i"m running a website on top of your code.
wish me luck!
