Ahh looks like latest raspbian included this instead in order to have something that can work in user space. http://abyz.co.uk/rpi/pigpio/index.html

I'm assuming raspi-io is fairly coupled to wiringPI?

It powers GPIO and PWM access, so it’s a pretty ordinary dependency (the only oddity is how it ends up in npm). Raspi IO itself doesn’t actually need root privileges, nor does it check for them, but Wiring Pi does check and is the one that throws the exception

Ahh right - that makes sense.
