I was wondering if there is any project that enables a user to write some simple IFTTT style programs for the Pi (or other Linux boards) that also breaks out the GPIOs of the Pi to be used in such a program.

So someone with some basic knowledge about electronics but with very little to no programming knowledge could do some simple programs like "if time is 6 pm make gpio 3 high" in a web gui. Pretty much like IFTTT but local and maybe with a little more features to make some more complex logic than just "if this than that".

Scratch GPIO is a great way to control the pins using a GUI: http://cymplecy.wordpress.com/2013/04/22/scratch-gpio-version-2-introduction-for-beginners/
