Configuring Python GPIO Pin Control Rock64
#1
I haven't had experience working with GPIO but it appears I need to find a Python GPIO pin library to control the GPIO pins on the Rock64 for the project I'm developing. What libraries do you (the community) think I should use for GPIO pin control on my Rock64? Depending on standardization, it seems a library should be on the documentation page for the board.

Thank you.

At the moment you have two options:  1)  write your own wrapper for /sys/class/gpio/  either in python or C for use with python,  or 2)  port the  RPi.GPIO-PineA64  package  for use with the Rock64 in Python.  Option (2) needs to be done by someone ( might as well be you ).  

The RPi.GPIO-PineA64 package is a port of the Raspberry PI Python GPIO written for the RPi3.  Its open source on git and should be fairly easy to port for use on the Rock64.  The C portions are going to be very very similar;  what will differ is the base address and the calculations for offsets ( pad addresses ).  You will want to crosscheck with the Technical Reference Manual Part I, and the datasheets for the RK3328.

Has the porting process / task been done as of today since you posted that going on... wow, 4 years ago now.

I would hope so... I was hoping to play with some pins tonight.
