Getting started with WebIOPi

Final Word

The simple examples described in this article covered only the most basic functionality of WebIOPi. In capable hands, this framework can be used to build rather advanced web apps for use with Raspberry Pi.

Unfortunately, you may find WebIOPi's documentation somewhat lacking, especially if you are not familiar with the technologies used in the framework. If you run into problems or have questions, the official WebIOPi community forum [4] is a good place to get help.
