NEW GUIDE: Quickstart using Adafruit eInk/ePaper displays with CircuitPython #CircuitPython #eInk #ePaper #Displays #AdafruitLearningSystem @adafruit

A new guide in the Adafruit Learning System today: Quickstart using Adafruit eInk/ePaper displays with CircuitPython

This guide is intended to get you using the Adafruit 2.13″ tri-color e-ink FeatherWing and 2.7″ tri-color e-ink shield quickly with CircuitPython. CircuitPython is fast becoming _the_ go-to language for microcontroller programming. The new displayio routines provide a powerful way to use graphics and text on a wide range of Adafruit displays. This guide shows how to use displayio with these two popular eInk / ePaper displays.

Examples include simple text display, displaying a bitmap image, and making a simple name badge with a picture and text.

And eInk displays are wonderful to use – the image will stay on the display even if power is removed! And these displays use 3 colors (white, black, and red), making for some nice possibilities.

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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
