Are the pitft nodes dead?

#1

Having recently acquired a pi with the Adafruit pitft board, I was going to have a play with the node-red-contrib-pitft and node-red-contrib-pitft-touch.

However I can't get a successful install for either of them. I noticed that these are pretty old nodes with very little information on them.

Does this mean they are effectively dead or am I doing something wrong.

Is there any alternative to them?

Thanks

just because they haven’t been updated in a while doesn’t mean they shouldn’t work, although they are quite niche.

if you can’t get them to work I would suggest finding the nodes in flows.nodered.org and following the links to github where you can open an issue that will be sent to the author.
