Issue #063 [WontFix/closed] - Add description for wiringPi pinout

Posted by slabua

Hi, this is not really a bug report but a feature request, not sure this is the right place where to ask for it. I was wondering whether it would be possible to update the description of the gpio pins also with the numbering provided here for the wiringPi pinout:

Maybe even just by adding them in parenthesis as follows: GPIO 2 would become GPIO 2 (8) GPIO 8 would become GPIO 8 (10) And so on.

-- Thanks in advance, Salvatore.

This seems to be the updated pinout for wiring pi:

Pin numbering has always been a pain and source of confusion, I admit. But adding an additional numbering schema will be another source of confusion. I instead decided to stick to the BCM GPIO numbering since the beginning.

Ah okay, thanks for the clarification. I though that since webiopi needs and uses wiringpi to work, it would also use the same gpio naming. At least I didn't fry any hardware because of that, although it made me wonder why it didn't work at first as I was expecting it would, eheh.

WebIOPi does not use WiringPi or anything else at all. WebIOPi read/write directly to the SoC registers.
