Have you been wondering what displayio is and don't know where to get started? Well, look no further. In this guide we show you how to get displayio up and running on our TFT FeatherWings. We currently offer a few different selections that all have drivers for CircuitPython.

What is displayio?

Displayio is a CircuitPython module that handles drawing to the display from within CircuitPython itself. It has been generally available for most displays since version 4.0 Beta 4. At this point there are displayio drivers available or most of our color displays. Getting started with displayio is very easy. You just need CircuitPython version 4.0 or higher loaded on your CircuitPython board and the appropriate display driver. Since the FeatherWings are the easiest TFT displays to connect we will cover those in this guide.
