It may be that I have imagined this but I am sure that I read something, somewhere.
I appreciate that this is not the first time that this sort of question has been asked but, in light of recent releases, I hoped that there was, as I might have imagined, some 'new' method of addressing the GPIO.
Thanks for your patience
You are possibly thinking of the new /dev/gpiomem which allows access to the GPIO if you are in group gpio. This allows access to the GPIO without requiring root privileges.mbartonpye wrote:Thanks for the replies!
I did wonder if I had dreamt this up as I had it strongly in my mind that there was some new way to address the GPIO directly from a webpage but it did seem a little insecure!
Your suggestions are very helpful though and will help me to get to where I want to be!

pigpio is supported by probably everything, stated that pigpiod is running.
