Run this example from the command line with:

node eg/expander-CD74HC4067_NANO_BACKPACK.js
var Barcli = require("barcli");
var five = require("johnny-five");
var board = new five.Board({
  repl: false,
  debug: false,

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

  // Use an Expander instance to create
  // a virtual Board.
  var virtual = new five.Board.Virtual(
    new five.Expander("CD74HC4067")

  var inputs = ["A0", "A7", "A15"];

  inputs.forEach(function(input) {

    var bar = new Barcli({ label: input, range: [0, 1023] });

    // Initialize a Sensor instance with
    // the virtual board created above
    var sensor = new five.Sensor({
      pin: input,
      board: virtual

    // Display all changes in the terminal
    // as a Barcli chart graph
    sensor.on("change", function() {
