Install RPi.GPIO Library In Raspbian


The RPi.GPIO Python library allows you to easily configure and read-write the input/output pins on the Pi’s GPIO header within a Python script.

This article is an updated version to take into account changes in the RPi.GPIO library and the release of the Raspbian SD card image.

UPDATE : Please use the Install RPi.GPIO Python Library article as this page is no longer updated.
