Python library interfacing OLED matrix displays with the SSD1306, SSD1322, SSD1325, SSD1327, SSD1331, SSD1351 or SH1106 driver using I2C/SPI on the Raspberry Pi and other linux-based single-board computers - it provides a Pillow-compatible drawing canvas, and other functionality to support:

  • scrolling/panning capability,
  • terminal-style printing,
  • state management,
  • color/greyscale (where supported),
  • dithering to monochrome

Documentation

Full documentation with installation instructions and examples can be found on https://luma-oled.readthedocs.io.

A list of tested devices can be found in the wiki.

The display pictured below is a SSD1306 (128 x 64 pixels), and the board is tiny enough to fit inside the RPi case.

As well as display drivers for various physical OLED devices, there are emulators that run in real-time (with pygame) and others that can take screenshots, or assemble animated GIFs, as per the examples below (source code for these is available in the luma.examples git repository:

Breaking changes

Version 2.0.0 was released on 11 January 2017: this came with a rename of the github project from ssd1306 to luma.oled to reflect the changing nature of the codebase.

Some core functionality has been moved out to another git repository, luma.core: this has enabled another project to have a facelift: pcd8544 has now been reborn as luma.lcd: the same API can now be used across both projects. Likewise max7219 has been renamed to luma.led_matrix so it can also take advantage of the common API.

The consequence is that any existing code that uses the old ssd1306 package will need to be updated. The changes should be limited to altering import statements only, and are described in the API documentation.
