Adafruit Python LED Backpack

Python library for controlling LED backpack displays such as 8x8 matrices, bar graphs, and 7/14-segment displays on a Raspberry Pi or BeagleBone Black.

Designed specifically to work with the Adafruit LED backpack displays ---->

For all platforms (Raspberry Pi and Beaglebone Black) make sure your system is able to compile Python extensions. On Raspbian or Beaglebone Black's Debian/Ubuntu image you can ensure your system is ready by executing:

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

You will also need to make sure the python-smbus and python-imaging library is installed by executing:

sudo apt-get install python-smbus python-imaging

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 install

See example of usage in the examples folder.
