PiFace 2 support again


#1
  • Device & model you are using (Ex: Pi 2 Model B or Arduino Uno with W5100 ethernet shield)
    Pi2B

  • What dashboard are you using? (Web, iOS, Android)
    Web or Mobile

  • Please describe the bug / issue as detailed as possible. Attaching the code and any relevant
    First, thanks for your efforts. Cayenne is so close to the perfect tool for what I have to do.

Unfortunately, like many others, I’m trying to add an instance of a PiFace 2 extension added and don’t ever see usable widget appear after adding. I’ve seen several similar bugs reported, but they are a year old in some cases. It seems like a known issue for one of the most popular Raspberry Pi board around. Any word on when this is going to get properly supported?


#2

The PiFace 2 uses the MCP23S17
16 port I/O expander chip…
on the SPI bus-
and that chip is fully supported in Cayenne.
Located under “Add New/Device Widget/Extentions/GPIO Port”

Easy Peasey!

please- let me know how that works out for you- :slight_smile:
