Remote GPIO access library

Project description

HTPIO : Remote I/O Access Library

PyPI PyPI - License PyPI - Python Version PyPI - Status

HTPIO allows users to use Raspberry Pi's GPIOs or similiar hardware remotely using various telecommunication protocols. The library also offers a simple locking mechanism in order to implement advanced testing scenarios using shared hardware.


HTPIO is a subset of the Hilscher Test Framework for products of the netX family. A brief overview of some netX products is given in the links below:


  • Python >=2.7
  • Python >=3.4


  • Remote GPIO access using various protocols
  • Pin locking to ensure shared use of hardware resources
  • Command line interface for shell scripting


To install latest stable release from PyPi use pipenv (or pip):

pipenv install htpio

or install the latest stable version from BitBucket:

pipenv install

Library interface

>>> from htpio import bridge, socketio, telnetio
>>> device = telnetio.RaspberryPi('')
>>> gpio = bridge.RemoteAccess(device)
>>> gpio.lock(14)
>>> gpio.unlock(14)
>>> gpio.islocked(14)
>>> gpio.configure(14, led.OUTPUT)
>>> gpio.set(14, 1)
>>> gpio.get(14)
>>> gpio.deconfigure(14)
>>> gpio.logout()

Command line interface

$ netxio -p telnet set --host --pin 14 --val 1
$ netxio -p socket get --host --pin 14
$ netxio lock --host --pin 14
$ netxio unlock --host --pin 14
