WebIOPi for the Raspberry Pi 3

WebIOPi is a server for the Raspberry Pi that allows setting up smartphone remote controls and similar very easily. I already wrote a tutorial about WebIOPi, but the old installation method does not work for the Raspberry Pi 3.
Luckily, doublebind has instruction for the installation on a Raspberry Pi 3.
Boot the Raspberry Pi and make sure that it has a running internet connection. Then, enter in the terminal

For more info about WebIOPi, check out my other tutorial on WebIOPi.

  1. Thanks, this worked for me. I had tried a lot of other stuff….

  2. :~ $ tar xvzf WebIOPi-0.7.1.tar.gz

    gzip: stdin: not in gzip format
    tar: Child returned status 1
    tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

    • Works for me- maybe the download with wget in the step before failed?
