chat-with-pi

An user-friendly web service to communicate with a Raspberry pi (send commands, browse directories, play with GPIO...). Oriented to education, 'chat-with-pi' allows collective learning. By using a friendly chat interface, students and professors can share knowledge and practise on a Raspberry pi. Without 'ssh' and in any platform/browser different users can share a real-time updated interface.

  • Download the latest source of node.js in your Raspberry pi:
wget http://node-arm.herokuapp.com/node_latest_armhf.deb
  • Install the package:
sudo dpkg -i node_latest_armhf.deb
  • Clone repo: git clone https://github.com/dgrmunch/chat-with-pi.git
  • Install dependencies in cloned repo:
cd chat-with-pi
npm install

Maybe you also will need to install zeparser:

sudo npm install zeparser
  • Run the app:
node index.js

PS. This is still an alpha version. More functionality will be added soon.

Enjoy! Help is welcome!
