gpio access via the standard linux sysfs interface

Project description

# Linux [sysfs](https://www.kernel.org/doc/Documentation/gpio/sysfs.txt) gpio access

This library provides gpio access via the standard linux [sysfs interface](https://www.kernel.org/doc/Documentation/gpio/sysfs.txt)

It is intended to mimick [RPIO](http://pythonhosted.org/RPIO/) as much as possible for all features, while also supporting additional (and better named) functionality to the same methods.

## Supported Features

sysfs is still under development, and so only supports minimal features

  • get pin values with read(pin) or input(pin)
  • set pin values with set(pin, value) or output(pin)
  • get the pin mode with mode(pin)
  • set the pin mode with setup(pin, mode)
    • mode can currently equal sysfs.IN or sysfs.OUT

# Future Features - setting pullup / pulldown values for pins - setting pins as pwm
