# Inky


This is a port of Pimoroni's [python Inky
library]( written in Elixir. This library is
intended to support both Inky pHAT and wHAT, but since we only have pHATs, the
wHAT support may not be fully functional.

See the [API reference]( for details
on how to use the functionality provided.

### Host Development

An [inky host development]( library
is underway for allowing host-side development, but until that is finished you
can not see results without using a physical device.

### Scenic Driver

A [basic driver]( for scenic
is in the works, check it out, to follow how it is progressing.

## Getting started

Inky is available on Hex. Add inky to your mix.exs deps:

{:inky, "~> 1.0.1"},

Run `mix deps.get` to get the new dep.

## Usage

A sample for Inky only, both host development and on-device is available as [pappersverk/sample_inky](

A sample for using it with Scenic both for host development and on-device is available as [pappersverk/sample_scenic_inky](

## Brief example

In typical usage this would be inside a nerves project. If Inky is installed in
your application you can do the following to test it and your display (note the
config in init, adjust accordingly):

# Start your Inky process ...
{:ok, pid} = Inky.start_link(:phat, :red, %{name: InkySample})

painter = fn x, y, w, h, _pixels_so_far ->
  wh = w / 2
  hh = h / 2

  case {x >= wh, y >= hh} do
    {true, true} -> :red
    {false, true} -> if(rem(x, 2) == 0, do: :black, else: :white)
    {true, false} -> :black
    {false, false} -> :white

Inky.set_pixels(InkySample, painter, border: :white)

# Flip a few pixels
Inky.set_pixels(pid, %{{0,0}: :black, {3,49}: :red, {23, 4}: white})
