formide-client needs the following requirements:

  • ARM linux (tailored for The Element, also tested on Raspberry Pi 2 and 3, and Beagle Bone Black)
  • MacOS also works, but with limited functionality for native implementations like Wi-Fi
  • NodeJS 4.x (the LTS release) and accompanying NPM version
  • A working internet connection for cloud functionality


You can contribute to formide-client by closing issues (via fork -> pull request to development), adding features or just using it and report bugs! Please check the issue list of this repo before adding new ones to see if we're already aware of the issue that you're having.
