Working with serialports can be hard, this is a collection of projects that make it easier. We currently have the following projects.
- Parser Byte Length
- Parser cctalk

Quick Answers to Important Questions
Intro to Node-Serialport
Node-Serialport provides an interface for the low-level serial port code necessary to control Arduino chipsets, X10 interfaces, Zigbee radios, highway signs, lcd screens, cash drawers, motor controllers, sensor packages, fork lifts, modems, drones, CNC machines, plotters, vending machines, ccTalk coin accecptors, SMS Gateways, RFID scanners and much more. If you have a hardware device with a UART we can speak to it. The physical world is your oyster with this goodie.
For a full breakdown of why we made Node-Serialport, please read NodeBots - The Rise of JS Robotics. It explains why one would want to program robots in JS in the first place. It's not being against firmware but we can be better than it.
