This project will show you how to install and use the Processing programming environment on a Raspberry Pi and PiTFT. Processing is a fantastic tool to create visual programs, and its latest Processing 3.0 release now has support for the Raspberry Pi. With Processing you can create beautiful artwork, prototype interfaces, and much more without having to be an expert programmer. In fact Processing is targeted at artists, students, makers, and anyone who’s new to programming.
One cool new feature in Processing 3.0 is support for controlling hardware. This allows you to add interesting new interactivity to your Processing sketches and even prototype hardware interfaces with ease. On a Raspberry Pi you can control the GPIO (general purpose input/output) pins and do things like blink LEDs, read buttons and much more.
