MicroPython Displays: Drawing Text is a new guide in the learning system:
So you have a nifty display like a bright Charlieplex LED or NeoPixel matrix powered by MicroPython, but what if you want to write text on it? Most MicroPython display modules only give you basic pixel drawing commands so it’s very cumbersome to draw text yourself pixel by pixel. Luckily there’s a handy new MicroPython bitmap font module you can use to draw text on any pixel-based display! This module shows some of the power of MicroPython–a single module can work with any pixel display because of MicroPython’s dynamic language features. In this guide you’ll learn how to use a bitmap font rendering module with pixel-based displays like the Charlieplex LED matrix or simple LED backpack matrix.
