Setup and Assemble Arduino

  • Recommended Starting Kit: Sparkfun Inventor's Kit
  • Download Arduino IDE
  • Plug in your Arduino or Arduino compatible microcontroller via USB
  • Open the Arduino IDE, select: File > Examples > Firmata > StandardFirmata
  • Click the "Upload" button.

If the upload was successful, the board is now prepared and you can close the Arduino IDE.

Hey you, here's Johnny!

Source Code:

git clone git://github.com/rwldrn/johnny-five.git && cd johnny-five

npm install

npm package:

Install the module with:

npm install johnny-five

Johnny-Five is...

var five = require("johnny-five"),
    // or "./lib/johnny-five" when running from the source
    board = new five.Board();

board.on("ready", function() {

  // Create an Led on pin 13 and strobe it on/off
  // Optionally set the speed; defaults to 100ms
  (new five.Led(13)).strobe();

});

Watch it here!

Note: Node will crash if you try to run johnny-five in the node REPL, but board instances will create their own contextual REPL. Put your script in a file.
