    node-red-node-hbgpio

    A Node-RED node to read and write the digital IO of a SolidRun HummingBoard.

    Install

    This install is for Debian based OS on Hummingboard.

    Run the following command in your Node-RED user directory - typically ~/.node-red

    npm install node-red-node-hpgpio
    

    Note : This should be run as root in order to move and set SUID permissions on a script to talk to the gpio pins. Alternatively you can run as a normal user and then move the file and change permissions manually.

    sudo cp node_modules/node-red-node-hpgpio/gpiohb /usr/local/bin/
    sudo chmod 4755 /usr/local/bin/gpiohb
    

    Usage

    Hummingboard GPIO input and output nodes.

    This requires a small script (gpiohb) to run as root in order to work. It should be placed in /usr/local/bin/ and have SUID permissions 4755.

    Note: We are using the actual physical pin numbers as they are easier to locate.

    Output node

    Expects a msg.payload with either a 0 or 1 (or true or false).

    Will set the selected physical pin high or low depending on the value passed in.

    The initial value of the pin at deploy time can also be set to 0 or 1.

    Input node

    Generates a msg.payload with either a 0 or 1 depending on the state of the input pin.

    The msg.topic is set to pin/{the pin number}

    Note: The input node waits for a change on the level of the pin before reading the value - and then resets to wait for the next interrupt - so it is possible to miss very fast changes as we may still be reading the value when the second edge occurs.

    install

    npm i node-red-node-hbgpio
