Cylon.js is a JavaScript framework for robotics and physical computing, built on top of Node.js.

This package provides some ancillary command line tools for Cylon.

These tools are primarily to generate scaffolding for new Cylon-specific projects.

Looking for more a more useful, general purpose robotics CLI tool? Then you'll love Gort, our command-line toolkit for RobotOps.

Getting Started

To install the Cylon CLI, use NPM:

$ npm install -g cylon-cli

You'll now have a cylon executable available:

$ which cylon


cylon [dir]

This command will generate a new scaffolded Cylon adaptor/driver module in the specified dir (or the current directory, if one isn't provided.)

It will prompt for confirmation if the specified directory isn't empty.
