why not? GPIO is GPIO. :P


the only thing is to find a GPIO library which fits best to your use-case. 

  • @Larry Bank provides a C Library with python and Java bindings (with a lot of examples, sysFS based).
  • I maintained a fork of pyA20 (Python based, pyGPIO /dev/mem based, needs root to execute programs) with multiple boards, but cause he's a way more active than me, I suggest to use his library as long as you don't need 'maximum speed' to toggle pins.
  • @sgjava provides bindings for a libgpiod based library (needs mainline kernel) with python and java bindings

And there are other libraries 'in the wild' which might or might not work for your board.

Yes, the physical pins line up with the RPI original 26-pin GPIO. Remember that the connector is on the "other side" of the board with respect to the RPI way of doing it.

Yeah, I remember from somewhere that OPi has "compatible" GPIO with RPI, but rotated (180 degrees?).


(as an important side note - would be nice if pin description on the breadboard adapter fit actual pins - I can live without this or with a piece of paper, but it's usefull to have valid description for kids :) )
