Fake Raspberry PI GPIO drop-in replacement for RPi.GPIO

Project description


fake-rpigpio is a package intended to provide a lightweight (dependency-free) fake interface for Raspberry Pi GPIO. The GPIO functions match those in the RPi.GPIO library, however the functions do nothing. This makes it easier to test GPIO-related code and to get the code to run on non-pi machines.


This package can be installed via pip:

pip install fake-rpigpio


A basic example of using this package to run with RPi.GPIO on a Pi and fake-rpigpio on a non-Pi:

    import RPi.GPIO
except (RuntimeError, ModuleNotFoundError):
    import fake_rpigpio.utils

This will install fake-rpigpio.RPi as RPi and fake-rpigpio.RPi.GPIO as RPi.GPIO, so you should not need to change imports for the RPi.GPIO library.


The following projects inspired this one. While all are similar, the usage and dependency weight varies between projects.
