Download and Install
The most easy and proper way is from haxelib:

Or you can download/checkout the source from the github repo.
How to use
Serial object, given its device name and speed(in bits per second, ie.baud):
var serialObj = new hxSerial.Serial("/dev/tty.usbserial-A4001tkb",9600);
The device name above is something you will get in Mac. For Windows, it should be something like “COM7”. For Linux(Ubuntu), it should be similar to “/dev/ttyUSB0”.
You can check the device names by
You can then read/write to the device using the readByte(s)/writeByte(s) method.
Note that you must read from the serial after setup. If the serial input is accumulated for too long, it will slow down the whole system.
true if the operation is successful.
writeBytes() returns the number of bytes it writes.
For reading, you first check the number of bytes arrived by calling
available(). If the amount of bytes you needed is enough, call
readByte() to get a single byte as
Int or call
readBytes() to get multiple bytes as
Fixed memory leak and added Neko support.
