Have you wanted to play animated Gifs on the Raspberry Pi without showing or taking over the entire desktop? Or maybe you are only wanting to SSH into the Pi and play some kind of animation without the fancy graphical environment. Or possibly, you just want to know how to play animated Gifs with Python and the Pillow library. If so, this is the guide for you.
This is an animated Gif player that runs on the Raspberry Pi and uses a PiTFT Display. It works kind of like a Slideshow player, but displays animated Gifs instead. Because this is written in pure Python, it won’t quite be as speedy as a C-based player, but the smaller the resolution of display that you use, the better the performance.

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.
