How to use the 10 segment LED Bar with the MY9221 on Pi Pico

Has anyone a library to enable the use of the 10-segment LED Bar meter with the MY9221 on a Pi Pico?

This is a Grove LED Bar library that should also work on the Raspberry PI pico

I have a similar question. Is it possible to use the LED Bar V2.0 without the GrovePi+ hat. My SBC is a Raspberry Pi 2 Model B. Not the Pi PICO. I don’t have a need for all the sensor interfaces that the GrovePi offers. It is an overkill for me. I just want to be able to command and control the LED bar using those 2 pins D9, D8 using software from Linux preferably python. How do I wire these pins to a raspberry PI and talk to them? Are they just GPIOs that I can write to from linux or is there some kind of protocol built on top that involves using a GrovePI.
