So you have a nifty display like a bright TFT LCD, Charlieplex LED or NeoPixel matrix powered by MicroPython, but what if you want to draw shapes and graphics on it? Most MicroPython display modules only give you basic pixel drawing commands so it’s difficult to draw graphics yourself pixel by pixel. Luckily there’s a handy new MicroPython graphics module you can use to draw basic shapes and graphics 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 MicroPython graphics module to draw basic line, rectangle, circle, and triangle shapes on pixel-based displays like the ILI9341 TFT FeatherWing.
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.
