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!
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
