This is a Docker file for building a container that includes Python as well as the CHIP_IO library for interfacing with GPIO, PWM, and ADC.
You must run this container from a CHIP that has Docker installed. To begin, log in to the NTC Docker account:
docker login ntc-registry.githost.io
Then download the latest image:
docker pull ntc-registry.githost.io/nextthingco/chiptainer_python_io:master
Now run the Docker container, allowing access to the GPIO directories, device memory, and the raw IO.
docker run -v /sys:/sys --cap-add SYS_RAWIO --device /dev/mem -it ntc-registry.githost.io/nextthingco/chiptainer_python_io:master
To test, you can try setting the LCD-D5 pin value on CHIP. First, launch Python:
Then issue the commands to set the pin HIGH:
import CHIP_IO.GPIO as GPIO
