Cylon module for any HID joystick

Plug your USB joystick or game controller into your USB port. If your device is supported by SDL, you are now ready.
If you don't have one of the joysticks we support natively, or want to make changes to the configuration,
cylon-joystick supports custom bindings.

It's useful for figuring out what compatible gamepads you have connected, as well as making it easier to generate custom bindings JSON files.
For best use, install
$ npm install -g cylon-joystick
Then just run the command:
