Controlling an Adafruit SSD1306 SPI OLED With a Beaglebone Black

What Are We Doing Here?

In an earlier post I described how to use the py-gaugette library to drive an Adafruit 128x32 monochrome OLED display from a Raspberry Pi, and a followup article added high-quality fonts.

I’ve now updated the library to run on the BeagleBone Black and to support Adafruit’s larger 128x64 display.

On the BBB py-gaugette uses Adafruit’s BBIO library for SPI and GPIO access.

Raspberry Pi Time Clock

Gaugette Time Clock

This build combines a Raspberry Pi with a rotary-encoder, an RGB LED and an OLED character display to create a time clock that logs my time on tasks directly to a Google Docs spreadsheet.
