This library has been deprecated in favor of our python3 Blinka library. We have replaced all of the libraries that use this repo with CircuitPython libraries that are Python3 compatible, and support a wide variety of single board/linux computers!
Visit https://circuitpython.org/blinka for more information
The library is currently in an early stage, but you can see how its used in the Adafruit Nokia LCD library to write Python code that is easily portable between the Raspberry Pi and Beaglebone Black.
Note that you typically don't need to install this library directly as other libraries will depend on it in their setup and automatically install it. However if you do need to manually install do so by running these commands:
On a Debian-based Linux like Raspbian, Ubuntu, etc. in a terminal execute:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install build-essential python-pip python-dev python-smbus git git clone https://github.com/adafruit/Adafruit_Python_GPIO.git cd Adafruit_Python_GPIO sudo python setup.py install
git clone https://github.com/adafruit/Adafruit_Python_GPIO.git cd Adafruit_Python_GPIO sudo python setup.py install
On Windows, first install the latest Python 2.7 version, then install PIP by downloading the python script here and execute it with
python get-pip.py in a terminal, and finally install the git source control system. Then in a git bash prompt execute:
git clone https://github.com/adafruit/Adafruit_Python_GPIO.git cd Adafruit_Python_GPIO python setup.py install
