An extension of RPi.GPIO to easily use interrupts on the Raspberry Pi
RPIO extends RPi.GPIO with easy interrupt handling.
Interrupts are used to receive notifications from the kernel when GPIO state changes occur. Advantages include minimized cpu consumption, very fast notification times, and the ability to trigger on specific edge transitions (‘rising|falling|both’). This is an example of how to use RPIO:
import logging logging.basicConfig(level=logging.DEBUG) import RPIO def do_something(gpio_id, value): print("New value for GPIO %s: %s" % (gpio_id, value)) RPIO.add_interrupt_callback(17, do_something, edge='rising') RPIO.add_interrupt_callback(18, do_something, edge='falling') RPIO.add_interrupt_callback(19, do_something, edge='both') RPIO.wait_for_interrupts()
If you want to receive a callback inside a Thread (which won’t block anything else on the system), set threaded_callback to True when adding an interrupt- callback. Here is an example:
RPIO.add_interrupt_callback(17, do_something, edge='rising', threaded_callback=True)
Make sure to double-check the value returned from the interrupt, since it is not necessarily corresponding to the edge (eg. 0 may come in as value, even if edge=”rising”). To remove all callbacks from a certain gpio pin, use RPIO.del_interrupt_callback(gpio_id). To stop the wait_for_interrupts() loop you can either set RPIO.is_waiting_for_interrupts to False, or call RPIO.stop_waiting_for_interrupts().
If an interrupt occurs while your callback function does something blocking (like time.sleep() outside a thread), events will not arrive until you release the block. Only one process can receive interrupts for a specific GPIO pin, since the read on /sys/class/gpio/gpio<N>/value destroys the value for subsequent reads. RPIO uses epoll to receive interrupts from the kernel.
You can use all of RPi.GPIO’s functionality through RPIO. Note that RPIO uses GPIO.BCM pin numbering by default
