Mopidy extension for GPIO input on a Raspberry Pi


Install by running:

python3 -m pip install Mopidy-Raspberry-GPIO

Or, if available, install the Debian/Ubuntu package from


Before starting Mopidy, you must add configuration for Mopidy-Raspberry-GPIO to your Mopidy configuration file:

enabled = true
bcm5 = play_pause,active_low,250
bcm6 = volume_down,active_low,250
bcm16 = next,active_low,250
bcm20 = volume_up,active_low,250

Each bcmN entry corresponds to the BCM pin of that number.

You must assign an event, mode and bouncetime (ms) to your desired pins.

Supported events:

  • play_pause

  • volume_up

  • volume_down

  • next

  • prev

Supported modes:

  • active_low - configures the pin with a pull-up and triggers when it reads 0/low (RECOMMENDED)

  • active_high - configures the pin as a pull-down and triggers when it reads 1/high

Events volume_up and volume_down both support an (optional) “step” option, which controls the amount (in percent) that the volume is adjusted with each button press.


enabled = true
bcm5 = play_pause,active_low,250
bcm6 = volume_down,active_low,250,step=1
bcm16 = next,active_low,250
bcm20 = volume_up,active_low,250,step=1
