Blynclight module for Node.js using node-hid.

Blync for Node.js

This library lets you control a Blync (RGB led for USB).

We use the NPM module node-hid which has a few dependencies:

  • Mac OS (I use 10.6.8) or Linux (kernel 2.6+) or Windows XP+
  • libudev-dev (Linux only)
  • libusb-1.0-0-dev (Ubuntu versions missing libusb.h only)
sudo apt-get install libudev-dev libusb-1.0-0-dev
npm install blync

// TODO

var blync = require('blync');
 
// How many Blyncs are hooked up? 
var deviceCount = blync.getDevices().length;
 
var device = blync.getDevice(0);
 
// Make Blync light up in red 
device.setColor('red');
 
// Make Blync blink in blue for 250 milliseconds 
device.blinkColor('blue', 250);
 
// Turn Blync off when you exit 
process.on( 'SIGINT', function() {
  device.turnOff();
  process.exit(0);
});
