Intro To Processing For Raspberry Pi #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
Get Processing working on your Raspberry Pi. via raspi.org
Processing is an open-source development environment and programming language, designed for learning how to code. While it’s very flexible and powerful, it’s mainly used in the realm of visual arts. Processing was created by Ben Fry and Casey Reas in 2001. With the help of Dan Shiffman, they continue to lead a team of volunteer developers to enhance and maintain the project. As a participant in Google’s Summer of Code, Gottfried Haider worked on Raspberry Pi support and the GPIO libraries.
By following this Processing tutorial on your Raspberry Pi you will learn:
How to download and install Processing
How to draw basic graphics using functions
How to react to mouse input
How to control GPIO outputs, like LEDs
How to listen to GPIO inputs, like physical buttons and switches
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
