s2serial

A Streams2 frontend for node-serialport.

Usage:

The S2Serial implements the same API as node-serialport except:

  • The parser option is ignored (forcing raw mode)
  • The returned object implements a Duplex Stream

Example:

var S2Serial = require('s2serial').S2Serial;
var sp = new S2Serial('/dev/tty.usb411', {baudrate: 57600});

// hypothetical Streams that implement some protocol
var encoder = new MyEncoder(); // encodes command objs into bytes
var decoder = new MyDecoder(); // parses stream of bytes and emits objs

sp.pipe(decoder);
decoder.on('message', function (msg) {
    console.log('message received from serialport: ' + msg);
});

sp.on('open', function () {
    encoder.pipe(sp);
    encoder.send({ cmd: 'getsomething' });
});
