SwiftyLinkerKit

Swift4 tuxOS

A Swift module to control LinkerKit components in a convenient way. This is currently focused on LinkerKit things attached to a Raspberry Pi LK-Base-RB 2 shield (since this is what I have 🤓).

SwiftyLinkerKit is based on the excellent SwiftyGPIO module, and of course on the great work of the Swift-ARM Community.

Supported Components

Right now SwiftyLinkerKit supports only a few components listed below. It is very easy to add new ones, we very much welcome contributions!

Also: We need help with understanding LK-Accel and LK-Temp (how to connect them, how to hook them up w/ SPI, contact us if you know more about that weird hardware stuff 🤖).

LK-Button 2

Two buttons :-)

import SwiftyLinkerKit

let shield  = LKRBShield.default
let buttons = LKButton2()

shield.connect(buttons, to: .digital2122)

buttons.onPress1 {
    print("Button 1 was pressed!")
}
buttons.onChange2 { isPressed in
    print("Button 2 changed, it is now: \(isPressed ? "pressed" : "off" )")
}

LK-Digi

A neat 7-segment display.

import SwiftyLinkerKit

let shield  = LKRBShield.default
let display = LKDigi()

shield.connect(display, to: .digital45)

display.show("SWIFT")
sleep(2)

display.show(1337)
sleep(2)

display.showTime()
sleep(2)

for i in (0...10).reversed {
    display.show(i)
    sleep(1)
}

LK-PIR

An IR movement detector.

import SwiftyLinkerKit

let shield   = LKRBShield.default
let watchdog = LKPIR()

shield.connect(watchdog, to: .digital1213)

watchdog.onChange { didMove in
    if didMove { print("careful, don't move!") }
    else       { print("nothing is moving.")   }
}

LK-Temp

Temperature sensor, uses a thermistor to detect the environmental temperature. LK-Temp is connected to one of the analog ports (and hosted via the board ADC running on SPI).

import SwiftyLinkerKit

let shield      = LKRBShield.default
let thermometer = LKTemp(interval: 5.0, valueType: .celsius)

thermometer.onChange { temperature in
    print("Temperatur is", temperature, "℃")
}

How to setup and run

Note: This is for 32-bit, 64-bit doesn't seem to work yet.

Raspi Docker Setup

You don't have to, but I recommend running things in a HypriotOS docker container.

Setup is trivial. Grab the flash tool, then insert your empty SD card into your Mac and do:

$ flash --hostname zpi3 \
  https://github.com/hypriot/image-builder-rpi/releases/download/v1.8.0/hypriotos-rpi-v1.8.0.img.zip

Boot your Raspi and you should be able to reach it via zpi3.local.

I also recommend to use docker-machine (e.g. see here), but that is not necessary either.

Running an ARM Swift container

Boot the container like so:

$ docker run --rm \
  --cap-add SYS_RAWIO \
  --privileged \
  --device /dev/mem \
  -it --name swiftfun \
  helje5/rpi-swift-dev:4.1.0 /bin/bash

You end up in a Swift 4.1 environment with some dev tools like emacs pre-installed. Sudo password for user swift is swift.

Importing the Swift Package

Sample Package.swift file:

// swift-tools-version:4.0

import PackageDescription

let package = Package(
    name: "testit",
    dependencies: [
        .package(url: "https://github.com/SwiftyLinkerKit/SwiftyLinkerKit.git",
                 from: "0.1.0"),
    ],
    targets: [
        .target(
            name: "testit",
            dependencies: [ "SwiftyLinkerKit" ]),
    ]
)

Example: Clock

A simple digital clock.

swift@f296eaf9ee96:~$ mkdir clock && cd clock && swift package init --type executable
Creating executable package: clock
Creating Package.swift
Creating README.md
Creating .gitignore
Creating Sources/
Creating Sources/clock/main.swift
Creating Tests/

Then edit the Package.swift file to look like this:

// swift-tools-version:4.0

import PackageDescription

let package = Package(
    name: "clock",
    dependencies: [
        .package(url: "https://github.com/SwiftyLinkerKit/SwiftyLinkerKit.git",
                 from: "0.1.0"),
    ],
    targets: [
        .target(
            name: "clock",
            dependencies: [ "SwiftyLinkerKit" ]),
    ]
)

Edit the Sources/clock/main.swift with the following Swift code. In the example the LK-Digi is connected to the Digital-4/5 slot of the LK-RB-Shield, adjust accordingly.

import SwiftyLinkerKit
import Dispatch

let shield  = LKRBShield.default
let display = LKDigi()

shield.connect(display, to: .digital45)

let timer = DispatchSource.makeTimerSource()

timer.setEventHandler {
    display.showTime()
}

timer.schedule(deadline  : .now(),
               repeating : .seconds(1),
               leeway    : .milliseconds(1))
timer.resume()

dispatchMain()
