From the Forums: Emulator for RPI LED matrices using Adafruit_RGBMatrix driver
Thanks to cujomalainey from the Adafruit Forums for sharing this with us!
Just thought I would put this out there, I made a python package for your Adafruit_RGBmatrix driver that allows users to run off target on their computers so they do not need the hardware to do testing. All it requires is tkinter and pillow.
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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
