ioboard

An extendable implementation of Johnny Five's IO Plugins.

Implements all required and optional methods, along with the required constants - MODE, HIGH, LOW, etc.

You should configure the relevant pins of your board in your constructor, then emit the ready event.

E.g.:

var util = require('util'),
  IOBoard = require('ioboard');
 
MyIO = function(path, callback) {
  // call super constructor 
  IOBoard.call(this);
 
  // connect to hardware and emit "connected" event 
  this.emit("connected");
 
  // .. configure pins 
  this._pins.push(..);
 
  // all done, emit ready event 
  this.emit("ready");
 
  // finally call the passed callback 
  callback();
}
util.inherits(IO, IOBoard);

Finally implement any of the IO Plugin methods of your choosing:

// implement digitalWrite 
MyIO.prototype.digitalWrite = function(pin, value) {
  ..
};

Logging

By default IOBoard will print a message when every non-implemented method is invoked. To prevent this, set the quiet property of the super constructor args to true:

MyIO = function(path, callback) {
  // call super constructor 
  IOBoard.call(this, {
    ..
    quiet: true
  });
 
  ..
}
util.inherits(IO, IOBoard);
