Python get CPU temperature and display it on image

Task: Get CPU temperature and display it on my clock's screen


    # CPU temperature
    cpu = CPUTemperature()
    degree_sign = u"\N{DEGREE SIGN}"
    text = str(int(cpu.temperature)) + degree_sign + "C"
    font = ImageFont.truetype('./freefont/FreeMonoBold.ttf', 22)
    img_txt ='L', font.getsize(text), 255)
    draw_txt = ImageDraw.Draw(img_txt)
    draw_txt.text((0, 0), text, font = font, fill = 0)
    image_width = font.getsize(text)
    t = img_txt.rotate(90, expand=1)
    image.paste(t, (155, 260-image_width[0]))

  1. Hi!
    Good, Thanks.

    One more thing – It will be good to add set priority of cron job in crontab file:

    * * * * * root nice -n 19 /home/pi/bin/clock/
