CircuitPython library for 4-wire resistive touchscreens
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-touchscreen
To install system-wide (this may be required in some cases):
sudo pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-touchscreen
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-touchscreen
import board import adafruit_touchscreen # These pins are used as both analog and digital! # XR, XL and YU must be analog and digital capable. # YD just needs to be digital. ts = adafruit_touchscreen.Touchscreen(board.TOUCH_XL, board.TOUCH_XR, board.TOUCH_YD, board.TOUCH_YU) while True: p = ts.touch_point if p: print(p)
