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.
See the guide for wiring and installation instructions.
Of course, you must import the library to use it:
import busio import adafruit_CCS811
Next, initialize the I2C bus object.
from board import * i2c_bus = busio.I2C(SCL, SDA)
Once you have created the I2C interface object, you can use it to instantiate the CCS811 object
ccs = adafruit_ccs811.CCS811(i2c_bus)
To read the gas sensor and temperature simply read the attributes:
print("CO2: ", ccs.eco2, " TVOC:", ccs.tvoc, " temp:", ccs.temperature)
Contributions are welcome! Please read our Code of Conduct before contributing to help this project stay welcoming.
To build this library locally you’ll need to install the circuitpython-build-tools package.
python3 -m venv .env source .env/bin/activate pip install circuitpython-build-tools
Once installed, make sure you are in the virtual environment:
Then run the build:
circuitpython-build-bundles --filename_prefix adafruit-circuitpython-ccs811 --library_location .
Sphinx is used to build the documentation based on rST files and comments in the code. First, install dependencies (feel free to reuse the virtual environment from above):
python3 -m venv .env source .env/bin/activate pip install Sphinx sphinx-rtd-theme
Now, once you have the virtual environment activated:
cd docs sphinx-build -E -W -b html . _build/html
This will output the documentation to
docs/_build/html. Open the index.html in your browser to
view them. It will also (due to -W) error out on any warning like Travis will. This is a good way to
locally verify it will pass.
