StepStick Stepper Controllers in MPF

We added support for simple inexpensive stepper controllers such as the StepStick, DRV8825 and various clones. Those are readily available at Pololu, Adafruit, Sparkfun, Amazon, ebay, Aliexpress and other electronics outlets. The StepStick supports a simple two or three output interface (direction, step and optional enable) which should work on almost any pinball controller or via generic GPIOs (on the RPi or P3-Roc). The number of steps per second might be a bit limited but enough for most applications in pinball machines. See the StepStick documentation for details. MPF also supports more advanced stepper controllers in case you need advanced features.
