KY040

Usage

Listen for rotary change and switch button press:

# Define your pins
CLOCKPIN = 5
DATAPIN = 6
SWITCHPIN = 13

# Callback for rotary change
def rotaryChange(direction):
    print "turned - " + str(direction)

# Callback for switch button pressed
def switchPressed():
    print "button pressed"

# Create a KY040 and start it
ky040 = KY040(CLOCKPIN, DATAPIN, SWITCHPIN, rotaryChange, switchPressed)
ky040.start()

# Keep your proccess running
try:
    while True:
        sleep(0.1)
finally:
    ky040.stop()
    GPIO.cleanup()

If you're not using switch button, only listen for rotary change:

# Define your rotary pins
CLOCKPIN = 5
DATAPIN = 6

# Callback for rotary change
def rotaryChange(direction):
    print "turned - " + str(direction)

# Create a KY040 and start it
ky040 = KY040(CLOCKPIN, DATAPIN, rotaryCallback=rotaryChange)
ky040.start()

# Keep your proccess running
try:
    while True:
        sleep(0.1)
finally:
    ky040.stop()
    GPIO.cleanup()

Using a custom bounce time:

# Create a KY040 and start it
ky040 = KY040(CLOCKPIN, DATAPIN, SWITCHPIN, rotaryChange, switchPressed, rotaryBouncetime=40, switchBouncetime=40)
ky040.start()
