Reflecta Arduino Core binds the functions pinMode, digitalRead, digitalWrite, analogRead, and analogWrite to the ardu1 interface. This is the Arduino library that enables the 'send' side of the Reflecta conversation.

Stability: Medium

Calling ReflectaArduinoCore from NodeJS

Simply load reflecta using

npm install reflecta
var reflecta = require('reflecta');
reflecta.detect(function(error, boards, ports) {
    board = boards[0];
    if (board.ardu1) {
        board.ardu1.pinMode(ledPin, board.ardu1.OUTPUT);
        board.ardu1.digitalWrite(ledPin, 1);

Reflecta will use npm to install and load this library automatically if the Arduino exposes the 'ardu1' interface.

A simple but complete example can be found in the node-reflecta project.
