This module helps you to communicate with the Adafruit Bluefruit Connect app or use its protocols.


This driver depends on:

Please ensure all dependencies are available on the CircuitPython filesystem. This is easily achieved by downloading the Adafruit library and driver bundle.

Installing from PyPI

On supported GNU/Linux systems like the Raspberry Pi, you can install the driver locally from PyPI. To install for current user:

pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-bluefruitconnect

To install system-wide (this may be required in some cases):

sudo pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-bluefruitconnect

To install in a virtual environment in your current project:

mkdir project-name && cd project-name
python3 -m venv .env
source .env/bin/activate
pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-bluefruitconnect

Usage Example

Normally this library is used with the Adafruit_CircuitPython_BluefruitConnect library (adafruit_bluefruit_connect). The included examples use that library. Below is a simple standalone example.

from adafruit_bluefruit_connect.color_packet import ColorPacket
from adafruit_bluefruit_connect.gyro_packet import GyroPacket

# [uart setup omitted]

color_packet = ColorPacket((70,75,80))
gyro_packet = GyroPacket.from_bytes(packet_buf)
