Adafruit Sponsored 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.


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 the lib/ directory. Some drivers may not work without them.

Board-specific Helpers

These libraries tie lower-level libraries together to provide an easy, out-of-box experience for specific boards.


Multi-color LED drivers.

Real-time clocks

Chips that keep current calendar time with a backup battery. The current date and time is available through datetime.

Distance Sensors

These sensors measure the distance to another object and may also measure light level (light and lux).
