The PyPortal is the perfect device to interact with internet of things (IoT) projects. Perfect when you need something that's a bit more than a few buttons on a microcontroller, but a computer or smartphone app would be too much. So you need some sort of simple user interface that can handle buttons, lots of text, icons, and even a few views.

In this guide we will cover a few steps that will make it easy to build a small User Interface in CircuitPython, the easy to use Python implementation for microcontrollers and single board computers (SBC). You may do things like:

  • How to change the display orientation.
  • Using Groups like windows that can be turned on or off.
  • Creating image placeholders that let you easily change the background and icons.
  • Display dynamic text with word wrapping.
  • Create buttons for navigation and in unique windows.
This process is known to work with the PyPortal and PyPortal Pynt. The PyPortal Titano uses a different display hardware.
