These externals use the WiringPi GPIO access library for the Raspberry Pi. Written in C they provide faster access than python and the ability to embed it in Pd. Just like WiringPi, it’s released under the GNU LGPLv3 license.
To use them, put them somewhere where Pd can see, either by adding it to preferences/path or with the [declare -path] object. You need to have sudo privileges to access the GPIO.
