LiquidTWI2 v1.0: A Lean, High Performance I2C LCD Library for Arduino

LiquidTWI2 is a nice update to the LiquidTWI library.

I have released LiquidTWI2, a lean, high speed I2C LCD Library for Arduino. This library is an extension of the great work done by FalconFour on his LiquidTWI library.  Notable additions to LiquidTWI:

LiquidTWI2 also supports the Adafruit I2c Backpack (MCP23008-based) in I2C mode.  The library is a drop-in replacement for both the Adafruit LiquidCrystal Library (for the I2C backpack) and the Adafruit RGB LCD Shield Library.  By replacing either of Adafruit’s libraries with LiquidTWI2, memory use will decrease, and writing to the LCD will become blazingly fast.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
