The ZeroSeg is an easy to use 8-character 7-segment display add-on board for your Raspberry Pi Zero or any other 40-pin Raspberry Pi model.
ZeroSeg has the ability to display 8 characters, data such as the time, date, counters, stock prices, sports scores and more making it very useful for projects of all shapes and sizes.
The displays are controlled by a MAX7219CNG integrated circuit, which manages each LED segment, requiring very few GPIO pins to run the board. This board's circuit is wired in the exact same way as generic 7-segment modules, allowing the use of existing code and libraries to easily create Pi Zero projects with 8-character displays.
To install first enable SPI and update your pi then:
sudo apt-get install build-essential python-dev python-spidev git clone https://github.com/AverageManVsPi/ZeroSeg.git cd zeroseg && sudo python setup.py install
