Python library to control an ST7789 TFT LCD display
Designed specifically to work with a ST7789 based 240x240 pixel TFT SPI display. (Specifically the 1.3" SPI LCD from Pimoroni).
Make sure you have the following dependencies:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install python-rpi.gpio python-spidev python-pip python-imaging python-numpy
Install this library by running:
sudo pip install st7789
See example of usage in the examples folder.
Licensing & History
This library is a modification of a modification of code originally written by Tony DiCola for Adafruit Industries, and modified to work with the ST7735 by Clement Skau.
To create this ST7789 driver, it has been hard-forked from st7735-python which was originally modified by Pimoroni to include support for their 160x80 SPI LCD breakout.
- PIL/Pillow has been removed from the underlying display driver to separate concerns- you should create your own PIL image and display it using
offset_topparameters can be passed into
__init__for alternate displays
Adafruit_GPIOhas been replaced with
spidevto closely align with our other software (IE: Raspberry Pi only)
- Test fixtures have been added to keep this library stable
