Node Arduino

Version: 0.2.3 - Released March 20, 2011

This package is designed to allow you to control and program an arduino chipset with JavaScript. It leverages the node-serialport code base, so ensure that you have that installed. In order to see what this package can do, please watch this presentation from JSConf EU 2010 by Nikolai Onken and Jörn Zaefferer.

How To Use

Using node-arduino is pretty easy because it is pretty basic. It is essentially a wrapper with arduino specific message handling around the node-serialport library.

To Install

  npm install serialport arduino

To Use

Opening an arduino board:

  var arduino = require("arduino");
  var myBoard = arduino.connect("/dev/tty-usbserial1");


This code is still very much alpha and early stage, but that just makes it more fun to work with. If you find an issue/problem, fork it and issue a pull request. No matter what, enjoy and do cool things with this code.
