It took some time but finally, we can exclude GfxLCD package from The Doton project. After this, we may focus on the next stage of Doton project.
But back to now:) We need to create a new package and publish it on the PyPi.
pip install gfxlcd
Task sound simple but we gonna complicate it a little bit. We will create the new package and copy required files there and after that, we will use our old friend Jenkins to make the code better.
Don’t worry I won’t describe all boring parts like creating, copying and so.
Of course, if I hit something strange you will know about it:)
Installing lib locally
There is a nice command to install package from the local environment via pip. This way we will check our new package in Doton project.
The command to do so is(in a project root, in my case the gfxlcd):
sudo pip3 install -e .
And the first problem:) I already had this in other RPi but I forgot what I have done to fix it 😀
(..) ImportError: cannot import name 'IncompleteRead'
Seems we need to upgrade our old pip. But how?
sudo easy_install3 pip
And case solved.
We have our little docker with Jenkins and we will add this project to it.
I’m almost sure that I need to change short variable names and that Jenkins will complain about the way I used the relationship. When else? We will see.
Ah! I have some bad relationships with VM/containers and Jenkins… My current volume for a container is damaged and I lost data:) Setup from the beginning…
And so it began… it took some time but the code is readable 😛 just see the image:
This is a strange post, big in the amount of work but small in words.
From now, we can install this lib from PyPi repository via:
pip3 install gfxlcd
We made it, GfxLCD is born 🙂
