Python library to control ST7789 TFT LCD displays.
Designed to work with the following Pimoroni ST7789 based SPI breakouts and Raspberry Pi HATs:
- 1.54" SPI Colour Square LCD (240x240) Breakout
- 1.3" SPI Colour Square LCD (240x240) Breakout
- 1.3" SPI Colour Round LCD (240x240) Breakout
- Display HAT Mini (2.0" 320x240 LCD)
First, make sure you have the following dependencies:
sudo apt update sudo apt install python3-rpi.gpio python3-spidev python3-pip python3-pil python3-numpy
Install this library by running:
sudo pip3 install st7789
You will also need to make sure I2C and SPI are enabled in raspi-config (
sudo raspi-config) - you can find them under Interface Options.
You can find some examples of use in the examples folder. Clone this repo with:
git clone https://github.com/pimoroni/st7789-python
and navigate into the examples folder with:
You can pass most of them a parameter (
dhmini) to specify the size/shape/rotation of screen, like this:
python3 shapes.py dhmini
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
