Buzzer utility for pi
This tool is showcased in the project IotaWorkshop
This is a beeping utility for the common buzzer. This package comes with a variety of beeps that can be called from a command line inteface or imported from python.
This package requires
RPi.GPIO, which I installed on arch arm using
yay -S python-raspberry-gpio
But ubuntu or rasbian can use,
pip install RPi.GPIO
To install pibeep simply install the pip package.
pip install pibeep
You can then look at the examples on how to run as a cli. You can also import it into your project using,
from pibeep import pulseBeep,beepDuration beepDuration(pin=12,duration=.33) #beeper on pin 12, on for .33 sec pulseBeep(pin=12,freq=25,duration=1) #pulse beep at 25HZ for 1 seccond
- short: duration 0.05 sec
- medium: duration 0.25 sec
- long: duration 1.00 sec
- warning: pulses 8HZ for 1.5 sec duration
- confirmed: pulses 16HZ for .5 sec duration
- brr: pulses 50HZ for .5 sec duration
The cli can be use any of the listed above beeps in the format as the following commands:
beep warning --pin 12 #Warning sound beep short --pin 12 #Small beep beep brr --pin 12 #A rumbling sound beep confirmed --pin 12 #A sound that conveys success
Usually I need to run it as sudo to have the correct permissions, but it depends on your setup.
