Interested in adding some NFC fun and excitement to your Raspberry Pi? You're in luck!

One of the big advantages of Linux is that it includes a large number of stacks that have been developed by the open source community, and you get to take advantage of all that hard work simply by using or installing the right library.

NFC is no exception here, with libnfc having been around for a quite some time -- in fact, it's the original reason the NFC Breakout was developed!

To get libnfc playing well with your Pi and your Adafruit NFC breakout you'll need to make some minor modification to your vanilla Wheezy distribution, and one small change to the latest NFC code (1.7.0-rc7 as of this writing), but it's pretty painless, and this tutorial will show you everything you need to do to start writing your own NFC-enabled apps on the Pi!
