    Cylon Robot Discovery

    This package discovers other robots in a local network running RobotDisco.

    Once discovered, it attaches the remote robot as a proxy robot into the Cylon.robots in this process. This lets you easily interact with all robots in the disco.

    To invoke a command on a remote robot, just invoke their command directly. It will return a promise:

    var Jane = Cylon.robots.Jane;
    Jane.getMood()
      .then(function(mood) {
        Cylon.logger("Jane's mood is: " + mood);
      });
    

    To listen for events on a remote robot, just start listening. Robot Disco takes care of connecting with and forwarding events to you:

    var Jane = Cylon.robots.Jane;
    Jane.on('mood_change', function(mood) {
      Cylon.logger("Jane's mood has changed to: " + mood);
    });
    
    var Florist = Cylon.robots.Florist;
    Florist.sendRoseTo('Jane');
    

    When running the Cylon API, all robots in the network are represented in your process.

    This allows API clients such as the Robeaux UI to interact with all robots by connecting with any robot running Robot Disco.
