OpenEXP is an open-source desktop app for running experiments and collecting behavioral and physiological data.
This software is currently in ALPHA stage but it is being rapidly optimized and improved. To get started, please follow the following steps:
1. Download OpenEXP repo
git clone https://github.com/OpenBCI/OpenEXP.git
2. Install NPM
Download or use NodeJS to support js dependencies.
3. Install the dependencies
npm install --all
This will launch the application and it will begin your OpenEXP session.
npm run watch
and in a separate terminal window...
Plug in your OpenBCI dongle :)
Click the Connect button on the top left of the app to auto-find your device. If the device is not found it will return a list of available devices to connect to.
A special thank you
Thanks Josh DeLeeuw for sharing jsPsych, the force behind the stimulus presentation and behavioral data collection/organization

Building for production
- Comment out/in the marked lines in
- Comment out the devTools line in /electron/main.js if you don't want dev tools
- If first time running,
npm install --allto get the devDependencies (you might need to add electron-builder and electron-packager globally)
- Now run
npm run deploy
npm run build:osx(Sorry windows/linux fam)
Boom. Now navigate to /dist/build/osx and see your magical .dmg! Note: If you are going to continually build/test MAKE SURE TO UNMOUNT YOUR .dmg EACH TIME!
To launch your app for the first time:
- Navigate to Applications folder in Finder
- ctrl + click (or two finger click / right click)
