Class for manage directly leds on raspberry pi in PHP

We can access GPIO ports directly with fwrite() for power on|off leds, without use shell_exec() function. The result is a fasted library to access GPIO ports. This one is written to manage LEDS, but with a litlle changes you can use it for other components (buttons, relay, ....)

# REQUERIMENTS:

- A minimum (minimum, minimum, minimum requeriments is needed). Tested on:

- Simple Raspberry pi (B +	512MB	700 MHz ARM11) with Raspbian Lite PHP7.3 (i love this gadgets)  :heart_eyes:

# FILES: There are 2 files:

led.class.php -> Master class. This file is the main file that you need to include in your code.

example.php -> Code with example use of the class

# INSTALLATION: A lot of easy :smiley:. It is written in PURE PHP. Only need to include the files. Tested on basic PHP installation

     require_once( 'led.class.php' );

# BASIC USAGE:

- Create the variable with led class on GPIO 18:

    $Led18 = new Led( '18' );

- Power ON GPIO led 18:

    $Led18->On();
    

- Power OFF GPIO led 18:

    $Led18->Off();

- Unexport GPIO port 18:

    $Led18->unexport();

RESUME OF METHODS:

CREATE LED ON GPIO PORT 'X':

  • You can pass $fpUnexport & $fpExport file handles if you have more than 1 led. In this way, only 1 file will be openned for Export and Unexport. If not params given, every led will open and close individually files for export and unexport. With $fpUnexport & $fpExport params yo will get a better performance.

Without file handles:

     $Led18 = new Led( '18' ); // Without file handles
     
     // Here your code using power on off on leds as you want
     // ......
     
     // Remember do Unexport at the end of your code
     $Led18->unexport();

With file handles:

     $fpUnexport = fopen( '/sys/class/gpio/unexport', 'w' );
     $fpExport   = fopen( '/sys/class/gpio/export', 'w' );
     
     $Led18      = new Led( '18', $fpUnexport, $fpExport); // With file handles
     
     // Here your code using power on off on leds as you want
     // ......
     
     // Remember do Unexport & close files at the end of your code
     $Led18->unexport();
     
     fclose( $fpUnexport );
     fclose( $fpExport );

Power ON led:

     $Led18->On();

Power OFF led:

     $Led18->Off();

Unexport GPIO PORT:

     $Led18->unexport();

Example

     <?php
     require_once( 'led.class.php' );
     
     // Create the variable with led class on GPIO 18:
     $Led18 = new Led( '18' );
     
     // Power ON GPIO led 18:
     $Led18->On();
     
     // Wait 5 seconds
     sleep(5);
     
     //Power OFF GPIO led 18:
     $Led18->Off();
     
     //Unexport GPIO port 18:
     $Led18->unexport();
     ?>

Of course. You can use it freely :vulcan_salute::alien:
