Processing Now Optimized for the Pi

Thanks to the new Hardware I/O libraries, Processing is now optimized for the Raspberry Pi. This makes it much easier to use the Raspberry Pi I/O pins, and send data back and forth with a Arduino.





Hardware I/O
The Hardware I/O library allows to access the computer's hardware peripherals, such as digital inputs and outputs, serial busses, and the like, in a fashion similar to the Arduino platform. This library is only available for embedded Linux boards with the necessary kernel drivers, such as the Raspberry Pi. https://processing.org/reference/libraries/io/index.html

Considerations and limitations can be found at https://github.com/processing/processing/wiki/Raspberry-Pi

import processing.io.*;
boolean ledOn = false;

void setup() {
  GPIO.pinMode(4, GPIO.OUTPUT);

  // On the Raspberry Pi, GPIO 4 is pin 7 on the pin header,
  // located on the fourth row, above one of the ground pins
  // For this particular board one could also write:
  // GPIO.pinMode(RPI.PIN7, GPIO.OUTPUT);

  frameRate(0.5);
}

void draw() {
  ledOn = !ledOn;
  if (ledOn) {
    GPIO.digitalWrite(4, GPIO.LOW);
    fill(204);
  } else {
    GPIO.digitalWrite(4, GPIO.HIGH);
    fill(255);
  }
  stroke(255);
  ellipse(width/2, height/2, width*0.75, height*0.75);
}
