node-dbus

node-dbus is a D-Bus binding for Node.js.

Installation

$ npm install dbus

How To Build

To build, do: node-gyp configure build or npm install.

Dependencies

Node-gyp
$ npm install -g node-gyp
https://www.npmjs.com/package/node-gyp

libdbus
$ sudo apt-get install libdbus-1-dev
or equivalent for your system

glib2.0
$ sudo apt-get install libglib2.0-dev
or equivalent for your system

Getting Started

Best way to get started is by looking at the examples. After the build:

  1. Navigate to path/to/dbus/examples folder
  2. Run node service.js &
  3. Run node hello.js

Work your way through other examples to explore supported functionality.

Note on systems without X11

If no X server is running, the module fails when attempting to obtain a D-Bus connection at dbus._dbus.getBus(). This can be remedied by setting two environment variables manually (the actual bus address might be different):

process.env.DISPLAY = ':0';
process.env.DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS = 'unix:path=/run/dbus/system_bus_socket';
