Simple PiTFT TouchPi Menu System #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

NewImage

Great tutorial via garthvh on GitHub.

Simple touch menu for Raspberry Pi projects using the 3.5″ Adafruit PiTFT 480×320 touch screen.

Runs as a python script in the framebuffer without needing a desktop environment.

I have made a model b+ Touch Pi 3D printed case for my screen and raspberry pi, and with a battery and PowerBoost 500c charger it makes a great base for raspberry pi projects.

I wanted a way to do common tasks like going to the desktop, rebooting and shutting down without needing to use a keyboard. I also wanted the screen to display the current IP address to make it easier to ssh into the device.

Written using python and pygame the 3.5″ screen is broken out into 8 large touchable menu areas.
