Installing

Full install ( recommended ):

We've created a super-easy installation script that will install all pre-requisites and get your Scroll pHAT up and running in a jiffy. To run it fire up Terminal which you'll find in Menu -> Accessories -> Terminal on your Raspberry Pi desktop like so:

Finding the terminal

In the new terminal window type the following and follow the instructions:

curl -sS https://get.pimoroni.com/scrollphat | bash

If you choose to download examples you'll find them in /home/pi/Pimoroni/scrollphat/.

Library install for Python 3:

on Raspbian:

sudo apt-get install python3-scrollphat

other environments:

sudo pip3 install scrollphat

Library install for Python 2:

on Raspbian:

sudo apt-get install python-scrollphat

other environments:

In all cases you will have to enable the i2c bus.
