Logitech G27 Racing Wheel for Node

Bring your Logitech G27 Racing Wheel into the wonderful world of Node.

  • Subscribe to wheel, pedal, and shifter events.
  • Activate simple force feedback effects.
  • Set wheel auto-centering and range.
  • Customize shift indicator LEDs.

Requirements

Node version 8 or greater.

Install

This library uses node-hid behind the scenes. Depending on your OS and Node version, you may have an effortless install. If not, you may want to consult node-hid's compiling from source guide for assistance.

npm install logitech-g27

Windows users who are having trouble connecting to a wheel may need to run the Logitech G Hub software one time to setup drivers.

Ubuntu users will most likely want to remove the sudo requirement of interfacing with the wheel. This can be easily accomplished by creating a file at /etc/udev/rules.d/99-hidraw-permissions.rules with the following code. After saving the file, reboot and then you can move on to more fun tasks.

KERNEL=="hidraw*", SUBSYSTEM=="hidraw", MODE="0664", GROUP="plugdev"

Example

Let's have some fun and make our wheel LEDs light up when we press the gas pedal.

const g = require('logitech-g27')

g.connect(function(err) {
    g.on('pedals-gas', function(val) {
        g.leds(val)
    })
})

Vroom vroom sounds optional but encouraged. ^_^
