Updated library and tutorial for Nokia 5110 displays!

Nokia5110 Lrg-3

We’ve updated the library we wrote for the cute Nokia 5110 displays in the shop. The library now supports contrast adjustment, and inherits from print so you can write code like this:

// draw a string at location (0,0)
nokia.setCursor(0, 0);
nokia.println("Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet");
// draw other characters, variables and such
nokia.println(0xAB, HEX);
nokia.print(99.99);
nokia.println('%');
nokia.display();

to automagically print out variables. nice!

  1. Thank you! I love these things! I was up last night working on this very thing! It did force me however to educate myself about the dtostrf, iota, and sprintf commands:) Thanks as well for the 2.8 TFT updates you put up yesterday. 🙂
