class gifio.GifWriter(file: Union[BinaryIO, str], width: int, height: int, colorspace: displayio.Colorspace, loop: bool = True, dither: bool = False)

Construct a GifWriter object

Parameters
  • file – Either a file open in bytes mode, or the name of a file to open in bytes mode.

  • width – The width of the image. All frames must have the same width.

  • height – The height of the image. All frames must have the same height.

  • colorspace – The colorspace of the image. All frames must have the same colorspace. The supported colorspaces are RGB565, BGR565, RGB565_SWAPPED, BGR565_SWAPPED, and L8 (greyscale)

  • loop – If True, the GIF is marked for looping playback

  • dither – If True, and the image is in color, a simple ordered dither is applied.

__enter__(self)GifWriter

No-op used by Context Managers.

__exit__(self)None

Automatically deinitializes the hardware when exiting a context. See Lifetime and ContextManagers for more info.

deinit(self)None

Close the underlying file.

add_frame(self, bitmap: _typing.ReadableBuffer, delay: float = 0.1)None

Add a frame to the GIF.

Parameters
  • bitmap – The frame data

  • delay – The frame delay in seconds. The GIF format rounds this to the nearest 1/100 second, and the largest permitted value is 655 seconds.
