Adafruit BeagleBone IO Python Library Updated with I2C Support (and pip/easy_install)

beaglebone_black

We’ve updated the BeagleBone Python IO library to include support for I2C.  This is the same library that was written by Kevin Townsend for the Raspberry Pi, so your code should be fairly portable.  In fact, the few libraries we spot tested in our Adafruit-Raspberry-Pi-Python-Code repository worked just fine on the BeagleBone Black (not all have been tested yet…).  Neat!

The installation instructions have a new mini-guide on how to use the new I2C module. In addition, we’ve added new installation instructions that should make it easier to install and upgrade.  You can now use ‘pip install Adafruit_BBIO’ to install the library once you have the dependencies installed.

If you run into any issues using any of the modules (GPIO, PWM, ADC, and I2C) please file an issue on our GitHub issue tracker.


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

  1. Please note that the i2c PWM driver chips also work using the rPi code.
