Introduction

Node.js implementation of ANT+ protocol. See http://www.thisisant.com/ for more info regarding ANT+.

This is a node module for connecting to ANT+ capable devices through a USB ANT stick.

This project was formed out of a need to communicate with ANT+ devices in real time while relaying data over web sockets. Node.js allowed a reduction of required technologies to accomplish this goal. Since initiating this project, other combinations of Node.js and ANT+ have presented themselves. For that reason I decided to open this project up.

Requirements

Install libusb either from a package manager or download an installer.

brew install libusb

Install

npm install node-ant

Documentation

Currently there is very little documentation. Documentation will be created as the project is expanded upon.
