Sharp Memory LCDs and the Raspberry Pi

This weekend I ported my Arduino library for the Sharp Memory LCD breakout boards I’m selling to the Raspberry Pi. At the moment, I have the short demo running successfully although the code does need (and will be receiving) further improvement. However, it’s already great to see how smooth the demo runs on it, with none of the pauses or stuttering I saw on the Arduino or ChipKIT whenever a math-heavy demo sequence was encountered.

You can grab the code from my GitHub page. There should be sufficient instructions contained within the readme.txt to get you going and I’ll be posting a full article on Memory LCDs and the Pi here shortly, along with a video guide to getting them working together.
