Using PiGlow with GPIO button control on the Raspberry Pi @Raspberry_Pi #piday #raspberrypi

RasPiO-PiGlow

Via raspi.tv:

Pimoroni released the PiGlow in August while I was away in Poland. It’s a small, purple board (that fits inside a PiBow) with 18 LEDs in 6 colour groups, arranged in a 3 armed spiral formation. It has an 8 bit, 18-way PWM controller that can be used to control the brightness of the LEDs (0 = OFF, 255 = Fully ON). (More on PWM here)

Although I was abroad when it came out, there was plenty of banter about it on twitter. In a few short weeks, various people have written Python classes to make it easier for us to use the PiGlow board with Python.

Once I can get the latest WiringPi2 Python up and running, I’ll give it a shot with that, but for the time being, I thought it’d be fun to code around Ben Leb’s “PyGlow” class and combine it with some RPi.GPIO interrupts, some buttons and a couple of my own PCB prototypes.
