Lilygo T5-4.7 inch e-paper - Idiots Guide

Doe anyone have an easy… i mean easy, how to guide to get the needed components loaded into home assistant esphome? I have the samba share component installed, I just have no idea what to search for or what to do to get this thing to work? I get the error “Platform not found: display.t547”. I am basically using this configuration with minimal changes.

Add support for Lilygo T5-4.7 inch e-paper module · Issue #1109 · esphome/feature-requests · GitHub I think.

I am still having issues trying to get anything to work with this display. Does anyone have a REALLY EASY guide to assist in how to get these displays to work?

I get the error “Platform not found: display.t547”

You need to manually include t547 as an external component, as it’s not (yet?) part of esphome. I think the example you referenced uses this library:

  - source: github://tiaanv/esphome-components
    components: ["t547"]

(Note that there’s also ESP32-S3 based T5 4.7 plus version available. It requires additional setup in your yaml and a different library.)
