DEPRECATED LIBRARY. Adafruit Python CharLCD

This library has been deprecated! We are leaving this up for historical and research purposes but archiving the repository.

We are now only supporting the use of our CircuitPython libraries for use with Python.

Check out this guide for info on using character LCDs with the CircuitPython library: https://learn.adafruit.com/character-lcds/python-circuitpython

AdafruitPythonCharLCD

Python library for accessing Adafruit character LCDs from a Raspberry Pi or BeagleBone Black.

Designed specifically to work with the Adafruit character LCDs ----> https://learn.adafruit.com/character-lcds/overview

For all platforms (Raspberry Pi and Beaglebone Black) make sure you have the following dependencies:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install build-essential python-dev python-smbus python-pip

For a Raspberry Pi make sure you have the RPi.GPIO library by executing:

sudo pip install RPi.GPIO

For a BeagleBone Black make sure you have the Adafruit_BBIO library by executing:

sudo pip install Adafruit_BBIO

Install the library by downloading with the download link on the right, unzipping the archive, navigating inside the library's directory and executing:

sudo python setup.py install

See example of usage in the examples folder.
