libmraa contains helpful bindings for addressing hardware on Intel Galileo and Edison that work in a variety of languages. In this tutorial we will use a python script to make an LED blink. You will need an Intel Edison, a way to connect to it (e.g. a Base Block), and access to some GPIO pins (e.g. a GPIO Block).


You need to have Ubilinux, a version of Debian, running on your Edison. You can do that by following this tutorial.
