A simple interface to everyday GPIO components used with Raspberry Pi
A simple interface to everyday GPIO components used with Raspberry Pi.
The latest release is 1.0 released on 16th November 2015.
Component interfaces are provided to allow a frictionless way to get started with physical computing:
from gpiozero import LED from time import sleep led = LED(2) while True: led.on() sleep(1) led.off() sleep(1)
With very little code, you can quickly get going connecting your components together:
from gpiozero import LED, Button from signal import pause led = LED(2) button = Button(3) button.when_pressed = led.on button.when_released = led.off pause()
The library includes interfaces to many simple everyday components, as well as some more complex things like sensors, analogue-to-digital converters, full colour LEDs, robotics kits and more.
First, install the dependencies:
sudo apt-get install python-pip python3-pip python-spidev python3-spidev
Install with pip:
sudo pip install gpiozero sudo pip-3.2 install gpiozero
Both Python 3 and Python 2 are supported. Python 3 is recommended!
Comprehensive documentation is available at pythonhosted.org/gpiozero.
