MeArm JS

This is a library and standalone app to control a MeArm (http://mearm.com) from a RaspBerry Pi or other devices.

Manual Install

The steps to manually install MeArm JS on to a fresh Raspberry Pi (running Stretch or later) running Raspbian are as follows. All commands need running from the command line, either from the terminal on screen directly or over SSH.

  • Update the system:

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get upgrade

sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

  • Update the npm version.

curl https://www.npmjs.com/install.sh | sudo sh

  • Install packages we'll need to run the software

sudo apt-get install -y pigpio python-pigpio python3-pigpio

  • Install the MeArm Software

git clone https://github.com/mimeindustries/mearm-js.git

  • Move into the repository

cd mearm-js

  • Install the npm modules

npm install

  • Enable I2C

sudo raspi-config

Select "Interfacing Options" then select "I2C" and enable the interface

  • Run the server

sudo nodejs ./server.js

  • Use it! You should now be able to use the joysticks on the Pi HAT to control the arm. You can also load the apps via your web browser if you browse to the IP address of your Raspberry Pi.
