OLED graphic displays are awesome… And it is a well known fact that the smaller they are, the more awesome they become! Adafruit stock a whole host of small monochrome OLED displays and in this tutorial I am going to show you how you can get one working with your Raspberry Pi. This guide will cover everything from wiring up your display… To programming it in Python.
By the end of this tutorial you will be able to make your OLED display do a number of things. You will understand how to print text to it and then use that to show the internal IP address of your Pi. You will also be able to turn your OLED into a scrolling clock that alternates between the date and the time. Finally you will be able to take any image and, through some clever Python code, show it on your display.
