class platypush.plugins.gpio.GpioPlugin(pins: Optional[Dict[str, int]] = None, monitored_pins: Optional[Collection[Union[str, int]]] = None, mode: str = 'board', **kwargs)[source]

This plugin can be used to interact with custom electronic devices connected to a Raspberry Pi (or compatible device) over GPIO pins.

Requires:

  • RPi.GPIO (pip install RPi.GPIO)

Triggers:

__init__(pins: Optional[Dict[str, int]] = None, monitored_pins: Optional[Collection[Union[str, int]]] = None, mode: str = 'board', **kwargs)[source]
Parameters:
  • mode – Specify board if you want to use the board PIN numbers, bcm for Broadcom PIN numbers (default: board)

  • pins – Custom GPIO name -> PIN number mapping. This can be useful if you want to reference your GPIO ports by name instead of PIN number.

Example:

pins:
    LED_1: 14,
    LED_2: 15,
    MOTOR: 16,
    SENSOR_1: 17
    SENSOR_2: 18
Parameters:

monitored_pins – List of PINs to monitor. If a new value is detected on these pins then a platypush.message.event.gpio.GPIOEvent event will be triggered. GPIO PINS can be referenced either by number or name, if a name is specified on the pins argument.

cleanup()[source]

Cleanup the state of the GPIO and resets PIN values.

read(pin: Union[int, str], name: Optional[str] = None) Dict[str, Any][source]

Reads a value from a PIN.

Parameters:
  • pin – PIN number or configured name.

  • name – Optional name for the read value (e.g. “temperature” or “humidity”)

Response:

output = {
    "name": <pin number or pin/metric name>,
    "pin": <pin>,
    "value": <value>,
    "method": "read"
}
read_all()[source]

Reads the values from all the configured PINs and returns them as a list. It will raise a RuntimeError if no PIN mappings were configured.

write(pin: Union[int, str], value: Union[int, bool], name: Optional[str] = None) Dict[str, Any][source]

Write a byte value to a pin.

Parameters:
  • pin – PIN number or configured name

  • name – Optional name for the written value (e.g. “temperature” or “humidity”)

  • value – Value to write

Response:

output = {
    "name": <pin or metric name>,
    "pin": <pin>,
    "value": <value>,
    "method": "write"
}
