Logitech G27 Racing Wheel for Node

Bring your Logitech G27 Racing Wheel into the wonderful world of Node.

  • Subscribe to wheel, pedal, and shifter events.
  • Activate simple force feedback effects.
  • Set wheel auto-centering and range.
  • Customize shift indicator LEDs.


Node version 4.0.0 or greater.


This library uses node-hid behind the scenes. Node 4 users should have an effortless install. Node 5 users may want to consult node-hid's compiling from source guide for anything more serious than a warning.

npm install logitech-g27

Ubuntu users will most likely want to remove the sudo requirement of interfacing with the wheel. This can be easily accomplished by creating a file at /etc/udev/rules.d/99-hidraw-permissions.rules with the following code. After saving the file, reboot and then you can move on to more fun tasks.

KERNEL=="hidraw*", SUBSYSTEM=="hidraw", MODE="0664", GROUP="plugdev"


Let's have some fun and make our wheel LEDs light up when we press the gas pedal.

var g = require('logitech-g27')

g.connect(function(err) {
    g.on('pedals-gas', function(val) {

Vroom vroom sounds optional but encouraged. ^_^
