text generation and display from feather

by danew on Wed Dec 21, 2016 6:52 am

Hi all
Just getting started with micropython and feather. I don't see any abilities to generate text output or display to the two currently available displays--320x240 or oled. It would be very nice to be able to display data or text. Any hope or advice along these lines?

If you are referring to the OLED FeatherWing with the SSD1306, there is a library for it, although it's still fairly basic at the moment. It has the ability to display text, but it supports only one font at the moment (and a fairly small one at that). There is an example of its use here: https://learn.adafruit.com/micropython- ... y/software.
