Hello everyone, I’m almost finished with the hardware portion of my DIY GameFrame. It is based on a Raspberry Pi2 and I’m doing a lot of modifications and expansions to the pixelpi python library. I am primarily using the project as a learning opportunity, and it has been great fun to get this far. I work a lot with image processing, so many modifications are related to this area for now at least, but I plan on getting in to web server stuff soon enough.
New features currently implemented in pixelpi:
-PIL/Pillow backend for image handling
-automatic image resizing
-a new funky 24-hour clock module
-a 3×7 monospaced font for text and numbers
I am also trying my best to document the code in the pixelpi library, because I found it a little hard to follow at times (but it is well written and I’m learning tons from it)
-automatic animation loading from sprite sheets
-“panning” large images
-“next bus timer”
-Conway’s game of life
-something cool you suggest?
