Display drivers for MAX7219, WS2812, APA102
Python library interfacing LED matrix displays with the MAX7219 driver (using SPI) and WS2812 & APA102 NeoPixels on the Raspberry Pi and other linux-based single board computers - it provides a Pillow-compatible drawing canvas, and other functionality to support:
- multiple cascaded devices
- LED matrix, seven-segment and NeoPixel variants
- scrolling/panning capability,
- terminal-style printing,
- state management,
- dithering to monochrome,
- pygame emulator,
- Python 2.7 and 3.4+ are both supported
Full documentation with installation instructions and examples can be found on https://luma-led-matrix.readthedocs.io.
Version 0.3.0 was released on 19 January 2017: this came with a rename of the github project from max7219 to luma.led_matrix to reflect the changing nature of the codebase.
The consequence is that any existing code that uses the old max7219 package should probably be updated.
