Bluetooth serial port communication for Node.js
This node module lets you communicate over Bluetooth serial port with devices using Node.js. The goal is have an easy to use API. This module is great for communicating with Bluetooth enabled Arduino devices.
If you have any problems make sure to checkout the FAQ.
Errorobject is passed in the 2nd argument of the callback function when a
writeis called before the remote device was connected.

Emitted when data is read from the serial port connection.
Emitted when a connection was closed either by the user (i.e. calling
close or remotely).
Emitted when reading from the serial port connection results in an error. The connection is closed.
Emitted when a bluetooth device was found.
Emitted when the device inquiry execution did finish.
Starts searching for bluetooth devices. When a device is found a 'found' event will be emitted.
Checks if a device has a serial port service running and if it is found it passes the channel id to use for the RFCOMM connection.
Connects to a remote bluetooth device.
Closes the connection.
Check whether the connection is open or not.
Writes a Buffer to the serial port connection.
errparameter is set an error has occured, in that case
erris an Error object. When
erris not set the write action was successful and
bytesWrittencontains the amount of bytes that is written to the connection.
ONLY ON OSX
Lists the devices that are currently paired with the host.
