This package can be used in conjunction with the overall SparkFun qwiic Python Package
New to qwiic? Take a look at the entire SparkFun qwiic ecosystem.
The qwiic I2C Python package current supports the following platforms:
The Raspberry Pi/Single Board Computer Linux driver of this package is dependent on smbus
The SparkFun qwiic I2C module documentation is hosted at ReadTheDocs
This repository is hosted on PyPi as the sparkfun-qwiic-i2c package. On systems that support PyPi installation via pip, this library is installed using the following commands

General package use examples:
import qwiic_i2c connectedDevices = i2cDriver.scan() if myDeviceAddress in connectedDevices: with qwiic_i2c.getI2CDriver() as i2c: i2c.writeByte(myDeviceAddress, register, 0x3F)
import qwiic_i2c >>> if qwiic_i2c.isDeviceConnected(myDeviceAddress): with qwiic_i2c.getI2CDriver() as i2c: i2c.writeByte(myDeviceAddress, register, 0x3F)
