If you're looking for the most compact colour display for a Raspberry Pi (most likely a Pi Zero) project, this might be just the thing you need!

The Adafruit Mini PiTFT - 1.3" 240x240 Colour TFT Add-on for Raspberry Pi is your little TFT pal, ready to snap onto any and all Raspberry Pi computers, to give you a little display. The Mini PiTFT comes with a full-colour 240x240 pixel IPS display with great visibility at all angles. The TFT uses only the SPI port so it's very fast, and there are plenty of pins remaining available for buttons, LEDs, sensors, etc. It's also nice and compact so it will fit into any case.

This display is super small, only about 1.3" diagonal, but since it is an IPS display, it's very readable with high contrast and visibility. There is a little space on the top-left so they've given you two tactile buttons on GPIO pins so you can create a simple user interface. On the bottom, there is a Qwiic/STEMMA QT connector for I2C sensors and device so you can plug and play any of our STEMMA QT devices.

Using the display is very easy, there is a kernel driver and Python library for the ST7789 chipset. You can set it up as a console output so you can have text and user interface through the Raspberry Pi OS or you draw images, text, whatever you like, using the Python imaging library. Tests showed ~15 FPS update rates so you can do animations or simple video.

Comes completely pre-assembled and tested so you don't need to do anything but plug it in, install drivers and it then works with any Raspberry Pi computer.
