Cylon adaptor for the Pinoccio mesh-networked microcontroller

Cylon.js For Pinoccio

Cylon.js (http://cylonjs.com) is a JavaScript framework for robotics, physical computing, and the Internet of Things (IoT).

This repository contains the Cylon.js adaptor for the Pinoccio mesh-networked microcontroller. The implementation uses the Pinoccio-IO node module from @soldair. Thank you!

Want to use the Go programming language to power your robots? Check out our sister project Gobot (http://gobot.io).

Install the module with:

$ npm install cylon cylon-pinoccio
var Cylon = require('cylon');
 
Cylon.robot({
  connections: {
    pinoccio: {
      adaptor: 'pinoccio',
      token: '[your token]',
      troop: '[your troop ID]',
      scout: '[your scout ID]'
    }
  },
 
  devices: {
    led: { driver: 'led', pin: 'D5' }
  },
 
  workfunction(my) {
    every((1).second(), my.led.toggle);
  }
}).start();

You can also access the built-in features of the Pinoccio such as the LED and Power status:

var Cylon = require('cylon');
 
Cylon.robot({
  connections: {
    pinoccio: {
      adaptor: 'pinoccio',
      token: '[your token]',
      troop: '[your troop ID]',
      scout: '[your scout ID]'
    }
  },
 
  devices: {
    led: { driver: 'pinoccio-led' },
    power: { driver: 'pinoccio-power' },
  },
 
  workfunction(my) {
    every((1).second(), my.led.toggle);
  }
}).start();

We currently have drivers for the following built-in Pinoccio devices:

  • LED
  • Power

You need to have an access token generated using the Pinoccio cloud. The easiest way to do this is to use curl:

curl -X POST -v --data 'email=your@email.com&password=yourpassword' https://api.pinocc.io/v1/login

It will return a JSON payload that contains the access token:

< HTTP/1.1 200 OK
< content-type: application/json
< Date: Sat, 21 Jun 2014 16:08:05 GMT
< Connection: close
< Transfer-Encoding: chunked
<
{"data":{"token":"thisisthetokenhere","account":1234,"perms":true}}
