When I first started prototyping electronics projects with the Raspberry Pi, I noticed that I was wasting a lot of time looking at the GPIO pin chart and counting pins on the board when I wanted to connect a jumper to a particular pin. It made me realize that I take for granted the boards that have each pin labeled on the silkscreen. Raspberry Leaf, a small printout designed by Simon Monk, will now save me a lot of time as I tinker with the Raspberry Pi. It labels each pin and can be placed directly onto the Raspberry Pi. Raspberry Leaf is available for download as a PDF or PNG file and even comes in versions for revision 1 and 2 boards (which have slightly different pin numbering). [via Twitter]

  1. This is pure genius and I am sure it will save me tons of time.

    I want to point out that you are showing a version 1 template installed on a version 2 RPi. I hope you haven’t used it yet,

  2. If you are looking for more templates and similar, there is a full page printout at http://cs.wisptech.com/altoids.php with the leaf as well as other pin outs for other boards all designed to fit into the lid of an altoids tin
