Controlling Arduino with Javascript

Javascript Arduino

Controlling Arduino with Javascript

Posting at the Safari Books Online Blog, Derick Bailey has created an Arduino project that bows before Atwood’s Law (“Any application that can be written in JavaScript, will eventually be written in JavaScript.”):

It should be no surprise, then, that JavaScript can also be used to control off-the-shelf hardware, circuits and other electronics like the Arduino platform. Through the use of frameworks like Rick Waldron’s Johnny-Five for NodeJS, and the “StandardFirmata” software package for Arduino, you can write JavaScript on your computer and use it to control and manipulate nearly any aspect of an Arduino-based hardware setup.
