Raspi.js

Gitter

Raspi.js provides initialization and base support for the Raspberry Pi. This module, along with Raspi Board and Raspi Peripheral, provide support for various peripherals on the Raspberry Pi. These libraries form the basis for Raspi IO, an IO plugin that adds support for the Raspberry Pi to Johnny-Five.

Check out the following peripheral API modules:

If you have a bug report, feature request, or wish to contribute code, please be sure to check out the Raspi IO Contributing Guide.

System Requirements

Detailed instructions for getting a Raspberry Pi ready for NodeBots, including how to install Node.js, can be found in the wiki

Warning: when using this module, it MUST be installed with user-level permissions, but run with root permissions (e.g. sudo node index.js).

Installation

Install with npm:

npm install raspi

Note: this project is written in TypeScript and includes type definitions in the package.json file. This means that if you want to use it from TypeScript, you don't need to install a separate @types module.

Example Usage

In TypeScript/ES6:

import { init } from 'raspi';
import { DigitalInput, DigitalOutput } from 'raspi-gpio';
 
init(() => {
  const input = new DigitalInput('P1-3');
  const output = new DigitalOutput('P1-5');
  output.write(input.read());
});

in JavaScript:

const raspi = require('raspi');
const gpio = require('raspi-gpio');
 
raspi.init(() => {
  const input = new gpio.DigitalInput('P1-3');
  const output = new gpio.DigitalOutput('P1-5');
  output.write(input.read());
});
