[Solved] RPI.GPIO Pull-Up and Down
Is there a specific reason why we cannot choose pin behaviour (free floating, pull-up, pull-down) for the two RPI.GPIO modules state and edge detection?
As they are only resistors, a wrong setting should not be able to brick something - at least not more as an accidential setting of the pin as GPIO output.
My specific scenario is: I've connected an opto-coupler module pulling the input to ground (via an on-board resistor) or let it float. I have to pull-up the input to make it work.
I want to avoid to fumble-in an additional physical resistor. So I've added a custom option for these input modules in my fork (defaulting to "floating" -> no change in default behaviour). Wondering whether the change is desired in main repo and I should do PR?
Is there a specific reason why we cannot choose pin behaviour
No specific reason, I just haven't had a use for it. I'd welcome the addition, so long as the default option is what it currently does, so that there are no changes to users currently using these inputs. Thanks!
Looks good. Merged! Thanks for the code additions.
