Daniel Bull, who attends the Milton Keynes Raspberry Jam, has created a stunning web interface for the Pi’s GPIO pins called BerryIO. It’s a great tool for beginners and experts alike to explore what the Pi can do with the pins. Here’s the summary from the Github site:
The long term aim of BerryIO is to enable developers to control the Raspberry Pi and its GPIO ports remotely from any device with a browser, without ever needing to connect a screen or keyboard to the Pi itself. The way BerryIO works is once the Raspberry Pi has booted up (or if the connectivity changes) it automatically connects to the main wired or one of the predefined wireless networks and BerryIO emails the owner with a web link. They can then click the link and open the control panel in a browser (with their username and password). There is also a command line interface, so you can issue commands directly to it over SSH or in scripting should you wish to.
It really is a very polished, attractive interface which I wholeheartedly recommend. Daniel’s always continuing to develop it so it’ll be something you can use into the future.
