Guides & Code

I have written a few general tutorials and guides that you may find interesting and useful.  I have also written a few simple Python programs for the Raspberry Pi to control the add-on Pimoroni PiGlow board. These are ideal for educational and fun use.  3way_junction.py simulates a 3 way LED traffic light controlled road junction and keylights.py illuminates the LEDs on the PiGlow using the keyboard keys. The code is fully documented and contained in an archive (zip) file. The Ben Lebherz fork of pyglow.py is used for this project. https://github.com/benleb/PYGlow
