I’m working on a thermometer display project with my inkyphat and the last thing I’m missing is text. I can print text alright with the python libs but since the thermometer is displayed in a portrait orientation the text is always angled 90 degrees.
I have found that PIL can perform a rotate and that a possible way for this to work would be to create a temp image, write text to it, rotate and paste into the inkyphat image.
How do I do this? I’m relatively new to Python and programming in general and can’t figure out how to call PIL/Pillow so it allows me access to what the inkyphat library itself is already doing.
Can anyone advise how to maybe achieve this? I would love to see the inkyphat library extended to support this out of the box. Would make text display a lot more versatile.
