UPDATED GUIDE: CircuitPython displayio Setup for TFT FeatherWings #CircuitPython #Feather #Adafruit #AdafruitLearningSystem #Display @Adafruit @MakerMelissa

The CircuitPython displayio Setup for TFT FeatherWings guide has been updated to reflect new demo code for the 2.4″ TFT FeatherWing.

Have you been wondering what displayio is and don’t know where to get started? Well, look no further. In this guide we show you how to get displayio up and running on our TFT display FeatherWings. Adafruit currently offers a few different selections that all have drivers for CircuitPython making them super easy and flexible to use.

What is displayio?

Displayio is a CircuitPython module that handles drawing to the display from within CircuitPython itself. It has been generally available for most displays since version 4.0 Beta 4. At this point there are displayio drivers available or most of our color displays. Getting started with displayio is very easy. You just need CircuitPython version 4.0 or higher loaded on your CircuitPython board and the appropriate display driver. Since the FeatherWings are the easiest TFT displays to connect we will cover those in this guide.
