serialport-manager

Manage transient serialport connections.

Install

npm install serialport-manager

Use


var spm = require('serialport-manager');

spm(function(err, connection, deviceList) {
  connection.write(deviceList[0].comName + '\n');
  connection.pipe(process.stdout);
});

How does it work

calling spm above performs the following actions:

  • attempt connection to the serialport manager daemon
    • if the connection fails, spawn the daemon
    • reconnect
  • on connection, wait for the device list
  • parse the json device list
  • call the function passed into spm
  • identify what device you want to use by sending back the commName
  • bind to data events or pipe somewhere

Why?

I want plug and play serial devices. I also want them to be accessible by more than one program.
