We can change just a few lines of our object-oriented code to replace the mraa library with the wiring-x86 one to read analog values.

First, we have to replace the code for the AnalogLed class with the version that works with the wiring-x86 library. We created this version in Chapter 4, Working with a RESTful API and Pulse Width Modulation, and the code file for the sample was iot_python_chapter_04_04.py.
