With Maker Edition out, I finally decided to play with the Pi and Ignition. The first thing I thought of was to do a small test and try a button to light up an LED with the built-in GPIO. Not so easy.
First, I tried to import the gpiozero library to use it from Ignition’s python (jython). I found several issues and got discouraged.
Then I thought of using a socket server/client communication scheme. This went better, but I had some issues too.
Now, before I go with all the details, logs, code and so on, I would like to ask the question: is anybody else doing something like this? Have you been successful with any of the methods above? Or is there a better way I am unaware of?
