This book is a major edition, as many aspects have been changed, rewritten, updated, and created. You can do many things with the Raspberry Pi – some have built a Star Trek interface, while others have built robots. This book provides the building block to work with Xojo to react with the real world through its motherboard to allow you to make your own interesting devices. This inexpensive computer can be programed by the widely recognized Xojo programming language.

This book “I Wish I Knew How to… Program Raspberry Pi 4B Electronics with Xojo” goes into the numerous programs that can be built to interact with many types of electronic gadgets. This book uses the latest Raspberry Pi 4B hardware with the newest version of the Buster Operating System.

Note: There are different books for the older versions – pre-Xojo 2019 r1.1, Jessie OS, and pre-Pi 3 B hardware. This book is for programing with the latest Raspberry Pi 4 B hardware, with the Buster OS, and API2 2019 r3.1 Xojo IDE with pigpio!

Major updates to the book are:

  • Written using the newest Xojo 2019 r3.1 (Xojo API2) code
  • Uses the latest Raspberry Pi Operating System (Buster)
  • Wrote a new pigpio (wiringPi is deprecated) library wrapper (which is free at https://github.com/eugenedakin and called pigpio-GPIO).
  • There are 27 chapters with more than 650 pages with over 70 example programs.
  • The new and free pigpio wrapper can be downloaded at: https://github.com/eugenedakin/pigpio-GPIO
