Aiko: Arduino Framework

A small modular, event-driven framework for structuring Arduino sketches, such that individual device drivers can be easily componentized and combined into a single application.

Aiko allows you to write event-driven code:

#include <AikoEvents.h>
using namespace Aiko;

int ledPin = 13;

void setup() {
  pinMode(ledPin, OUTPUT);
  Events.addHandler(blink, 1000);  // Every 1000ms
}

void loop() {
  Events.loop();
}

void blink() {
  static boolean on = HIGH;
  digitalWrite(ledPin, on);
  on = !on;
}

Writing individual device drivers as event-driven functions makes it simpler to create device specific modules that can be shared with others and easier to then combine and integrate them with less code changes.

Installation

Get the samotage fork of the Aiko codeline: https://github.com/samotage/Aiko

You will need some libraries for Arduino to compile correctly,

Change into your Arduino libraries folder and use git to clone the project.

On a Mac this looks like:

cd /Applications/Arduino.app/Contents/Resources/Java/libraries

into this directory copy the whole Aiko directory as a library.
this will include necessary resources for the SEGmeter.

On Linux, this will directory will be wherever you install your Arduino software.

Other dependencies

There are some other things that the SEGmeter code needs to work fully, these are separate Arduino libraries that need to be instlled into the library directory above.

They are:

NewSoftSerial PString OneWire DallasTemperature

Whilst it's possible to search for these resources in the intertubes, they have been packaged up here for your benifit.

So, go to here: https://github.com/samotage/Aiko/tree/master/other_arduino_libraries/

And add each of the above directories into the above mentioned Arduino Library directory.

Modules

  • Callback - Easy to use function and method callbacks.
  • Events - Schedule regular callbacks so you can easily deal with a bunch of devices connected to your Arduino.
  • SExpression - Parse simple SExpressions. Think of this as the Arduino equivalent of JSON.
  • Timing - Accurate timing, including better replacements for the standard Arduino timing functions.

See the corresponding files in the docs directory for more info on each module.
