    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:
    -text scrolling
    -PNG images
    -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)

    TODO’s:
    -automatic animation loading from sprite sheets
    -animated .GIFs
    -“panning” large images
    -“next bus timer”
    -Conway’s game of life
    -web interface
    -something cool you suggest?
