Additional Adafruit Libraries and Drivers on GitHub¶
These are libraries and drivers available in separate GitHub repos. They are designed for use with CircuitPython and may or may not work with MicroPython.
We provide a bundle of all our libraries to ease installation of drivers and their dependencies. The bundle is primarily geared to the Adafruit Express line of boards which feature a relatively large external flash. With Express boards, its easy to copy them all onto the filesystem. However, if you don’t have enough space simply copy things over as they are needed.
The bundles are available on GitHub.
To install them:
- Download and unzip the latest zip that’s not a source zip.
- Copy the
libfolder to the
These libraries provide critical functionality to many of the drivers below. It
is recommended to always have them installed onto the CircuitPython file system in
lib/ directory. Some drivers may not work without them.
These libraries tie lower-level libraries together to provide an easy, out-of-box experience for specific boards.
These libraries build on top of the low level APIs to simplify common tasks.
Drivers used to display information. Either pixel or segment based.
