Nixie Pipe Electron App

Nixie Pipe GUI controller built on Electron.



  1. Download and run Nixie Pipe Controller app using the link for your system below. You will also need to install the FTDI D2XX Drivers for your system here.
  2. Once loaded, connect a Nixie Pipe Master via USB. If using a clock Master, enter serial mode by pressing the left-hand touch button - the clock will change green entering countdown set mode (other Master units will always operate in serial mode).
  3. Press 'Connect' in the left column of the app. Once connected, the firmware version will be shown and the app functions can be used. If using a Weather Pipe, tick 'Weather Pipe' prior to pressing 'Connect'.

Packaged Binaries

Run Source

git clone https://github.com/tuna-f1sh/electron-nixiepipe

The process is quite a bit more complicated on Windows as involves using node-gyp-pre. See the 'win32' branch.
