[Software] WiringPi

Post by Zombievirus »

Hi FourDee,

I have a good Software suggestion for DietPi.

WiringPi

It is basically a competitor to RPi.GPIO

WiringPi has a command line utility called 'gpio'. This makes it possible to control GPIO pins from the command line. Read about it here

Generally WiringPi has a lot more features available, SPI/I2C, Gert board etc.

and it's more newbie friendly because the code looks a lot like Arduino Code.

Regards

oops! I just kept refreshing the version history page in the Forum. Didn't check via the command itself.

Thanks for the update :D

If I might suggest - wiringPI only works for the PI - whereas WiringOP works for the likes of OrangePI - it does need some customisation for the likes of the FriendlyArm units and currently the pin numbers are wrong on all but the OrangePi - modifying with a parameter to set up what hardware is in use would make this INCREDIBLY useful as it has the GPIO tool which can be used by a non-root user - and hence by Node-Red EXEC node. I am running a NEO right now and I have a led flashing on and off using this - I cannot however figure out how to get the I2c running - I suspect something is missing. Not everyone wants to build music centres and so access to hardware as easy as it is on the real Pi would be a godsend.
