Python Based UI for LED Matrix #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
Thanks to Matthew for sending in this tip! Matthew writes:
As a thank you both to your company and to the Raspberry Pi community I want to share a python-based 32×32 LED matrix UI. The UI allows for picture storage and retrieval, live display on the Adafruit 32×32 matrix, along with some other options.
This was my first personal project that I am interested in sharing widely, I apologize for any bad form in the code. This was also the first time I have played with Tkinter. The source code likely needs some error handling before it can be added to your library example code.
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
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.
