PiFace Control and Display Emulator


pifacecad-emulator is in the Raspbian repositories. Install with:

$ sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install python3-pifacecad-emulator

Development Notes

Uses Python 3 because of Barrier in threading.

Run the script to build the UI first (you only have to do this whenever you make a change to the UI in designer-qt4)

$ ./bin/

Test with:

$ python3

Otherwise, use just like you would pifacecad:

$ python3
>>> import pifacecad_emulator
>>> cad = pifacecad_emulator.PiFaceCAD()
>>> cad.lcd.write("hello")
