Angular IoT

IoT support for Angular

Angular IoT is an experimental technology that allows you to program physical hardware (buttons, LEDs, etc.) using Angular. It provides a set of directives, such as <iot-button> and <iot-led> that let you interface with the hardware. It is even possible to create an application that renders both a Web interface and an IoT (hardware) interface with a single code base. See ng2-simon for an example.

Behind the scenes, it uses a combination of angular-universal for running the application inside Node.js, and the johnny-five library for interfacing with the hardware.

Building & Running the Blink example


The Blink Example will blink the built-in LED on an Adruino board that is connected to your PC. You will need to upload the StandardFirmata firmware to your Arduino board first.

git clone
cd angular-iot
npm install
npm run example:build
npm run example:run

Note: The example program will try to detect the serial port that the Arduino is connected to automatically. You can manually specify the port name by setting the SERIAL_PORT environment variable prior to running the example.

C.H.I.P. (9$ computer)

CHIP is a tiny 9$ computer that has enough computing power to run Angular. It also has WiFi and Bluetooth built-in, which makes it an ideal IoT platform. There is a version of the Blink Example that runs on CHIP. In order to run it, make sure you have Node 6.x installed on your CHIP (you can install it via nvm), and the run the following commands:

git clone
cd angular-iot
npm install
npm install chip-io
npm run example:build
npm run example:chip

The on-board Status LED should start blinking.
