Has anybody added a spunding valve to craftbeerpi where the pressure can be monitored and adjusted through craftbeerpi?

If so, what did you use?

git.drogon.net: says :

git.drogon.net is currently unavailable.

Please look for alternatives for wiringPi, etc.

(I really mean look for an alternative - as in use another GPIO library. also read the news on News | Wiring Pi )

It sounds to me as it is not going to come back any time soon.

Edit: You can open an issue here.

If you are installing CBPi3 (the current version) wiring Pi is not needed.
I've been running CBPi 3 on a Pi3 for a year or so now without issue.
If you still hit issues installing there is a forked version that I used to install it that ensures all the correct versioning of python etc is correctly installed. Shout and I'll search it out 👍

I searched around last night and found a guide for cbp3 last night and it worked a treat. This isn't mentioned on the cbp site. It tries to load an old version. I'm looking foward to playing with it tonight!
