    Use C++ Libraries with Python




      How can I use a C++ library for the Edison with Python? I heard that it's possible, but I've been unable to find out how.


      Specifically, I want to use the SparkFun OLED Libraries from here with Python.


      Thanks for any help!

          That library is just a rewrite of an Arduino library. Check if there is a Python version and apply changes.


          A better approach would be to use a Linux framebuffer. Then you would run a framebuffer kernel driver for your OLED screen and your Python code would write to the framebuffer.


          This project maintains OLED framebuffer drivers for the Raspberry Pi LCD Modules · notro/fbtft Wiki · GitHub

          It needs tweaking for the Edison that require programming skills. There were threads here about it.
