CircuitPython on Raspberry Pi: UPDATED GUIDES for Character LCD Displays and Matrix Keypads #CircuitPython #AdafruitLearningSystem #Adafruit @Adafruit

That’s right! It’s CircuitPython on Raspberry Pi! Wire up your favorite sensors and use the same great CircuitPython code you’ve been using with microcontrollers right on your Raspberry Pi!

We’ve got tons of projects, libraries and example code for CircuitPython on microcontrollers, and thanks to the flexibility and power of Python it’s easy to get it working with micro-computers like Raspberry Pi or other ‘Linux with GPIO pins available’ single board computers.

We’ve written a special library called Adafruit Blinka to provide the layer that translates the CircuitPython hardware API to whatever library the Linux board provides.

CircuitPython on Raspberry Pi: UPDATED GUIDES

We’ve added all the libraries to PyPi so installation is super simple via pip. We’ve also updated the CircuitPython guides! They now have sections for wiring up the sensor to and installing the libraries on your Raspberry Pi. The CircuitPython code works exactly the same way it works on microcontrollers, so the code examples will work on your Raspberry Pi too!

We have over 100 guides to update, so watch for updates to the Adafruit Learning System in batches. Here’s the next five:

Character LCDs – Adafruit sells many character-based displays. Four libraries have been updated for CircuitPython:

The Matrix Keypad Driver allows use of different multiplexed keypads in CircuitPython.
