Windows Users

node-blink1 depends on node-hid, a native module that uses node-gyp to build. node-gyp requires Python 2.7.3 in the PATH, and if you have Python 3 installed, you may have to modify your PATH for node-gyp to locate it.

See issue #3 for details.

Linux Users

If you encounter the following error while installing, you'll need new install of libusb.

libusb.h: No such file or directory compilation terminated.

For Debian and Ubuntu, install the package libusb-1.0-0.dev.

See issue #4 for details.

Usage

var Blink1 = require('node-blink1');

Get list of blink(1) devices connected:

Blink1.devices(); // returns array of serial numbers

Create blink(1) object without serial number, uses first device:

var blink1 = new Blink1();

Create blink(1) object with serial number, to get list of serial numbers use Blink1.devices():

var blink1 = new Blink1(serialNumber);

Get version:

blink1.version(callback(version))

Set colors

Fade to RGB, optional callback called after fadeMillis ms:

blink1.fadeToRGB(fadeMillis, r, g, b, [callback]) // r, g, b: 0 - 255

Set RGB:

blink1.setRGB(r, g, b, [callback]) // r, g, b: 0 - 255

Other methods

Set server down (enable, disable), optional callback called after millis ms:

blink1.enableServerDown(millis, [callback]) // tickle

blink1.disableServerDown(millis, [callback]) // off

Play (start playing the pattern lines at the specified position):

blink1.play = function(position, [callback])

Pause (stop playing the pattern line):

blink1.pause = function([callback])

Write pattern line (set the parameters for a pattern line, at the specified position):

blink1.writePatternLine(fadeMillis, r, g, b, position, [callback]) // r, g, b: 0 - 255

Read pattern line (at the position):

blink1.readPatternLine(position, [callback])
