Raspberry Pi – Using the GPIO…

Part 1:

Here is how to use your Raspberry Pi’s GPIO pins… Part 1. Make sure to watch Part 2:

EDIT: I apologise for the quality of the video, as well as the quality of my tutorial; this was one of my early tutorials and as you can see I was not very experienced at all! Please have a look at some of my later videos, the quality of them is a lot higher!

Commands used:

sudo apt-get install python-rpi.gpio

And if needed:

sudo apt-get install python-dev

Code is as follows (Be careful though the indentation may be wrong!):

import RPi.GPIO as gpio
import time

#set up pin 14 as an output
gpio.setmode(gpio.BCM)
gpio.setup(14, gpio.OUT)

#Make an LED flash on and off forever
while True:
gpio.output(14, gpio.HIGH)
time.sleep(1)
gpio.output(14, gpio.LOW)
time.sleep(1)

Happy Piing!

    Thanks man, exactly what I needed. Got my flashy light nicely with my recently procured Pi2.
