Interfacing LED matrix displays with the MAX7219 driver [PDF datasheet] in Python (both 2.7 and 3.x are supported) using hardware SPI on the Raspberry Pi. A LED matrix can be acquired for a few pounds from outlets like Banggood. Likewise 7-segment displays are available from Ali-Express or Ebay.

This library supports:

  • multiple cascaded devices
  • LED matrix and seven-segment variants
