CircuitPython displayio drivers for SSD1675-based ePaper displays

Dependencies

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

Note

This library is not available on PyPI yet. Install documentation is included as a standard element. Stay tuned for PyPI availability!

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-ssd1675

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

sudo pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-ssd1675

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-ssd1675

Usage Example

"""Simple test script for 2.13" 250x122 black and white featherwing.

Supported products:
  * Adafruit 2.13" Black and White FeatherWing
