Description

Latest Version

A simple interface to everyday GPIO components used with Raspberry Pi.

Created by Ben Nuttall of the Raspberry Pi Foundation, Dave Jones, and other contributors.

About

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.

Install
