Re: Node.js 0.8.1

Thanks for your links, been speaking with a friend that is in the node.js community and he strongly advises your 2nd link: http://syskall.com/how-to-write-your-own-native-nodejs-extension also sent me this link to the official node.js API: http://nodejs.org/docs/latest/api/addons.html He also refere...

Re: Node.js 0.8.1

I'm not following you. We can create such an app, GPIO to net, alreay in Node.js. In fact that is pretty much what I want to do, GPIO to web socket server (node.js) to browser, as a first experiment. Use google-chrome in app mode and you a have what looks like a dedicated application for managing y...

Re: Node.js 0.8.1

I agree! That would require a little bit of C code to do the job. I think I feel a new little project comming on. A synchronous GPIO module for node.js. You know what would be awesome, a C app doing proxy/gateway to the GPIOs, this app would manage all GPIO related stuff, export/un-export/read_sync/...

Re: Node.js 0.8.1

Hi Heater, botdream, You have a broken link on your Raspiberrypi_GPIO page, should be: https://github.com/JamesBarwell/rpi-gpio.js Thing is the link looks right but does not work when I click on it for some reason. Thanks, forgot to double check! Fixed it! But I really need to make a proper README f...

Re: Node.js 0.8.1

I'm glad to see someone else going this way, node.js + microcontroller, the best of the 2 worlds ;) I'm currently doing some test with GPIO remote control with node.js WebInterface, my front-end and instructions are still a work-in-progress, currently focused on the core. Already have flatiron on no...

Re: Node.js 0.8.1

Thanks, glad to help (even taking so much time to answer)! Should we be worried about all those errors in make test? That last one, where it stops, looks like a python exception in the test harness rather than a JS error but there are some of those as it runs. errr, to be honest I never used them be...

Re: Node.js 0.8.1

gflarity, In your compile instructions at https://github.com/gflarity/node_pi the line git checkout origin/v0.8.2-release -b v0.8.2-release failed. Seems to not know that version and something about conflicting git commands. FYI: moved my instructions to a separated repo: https://github.com/nneves/...

Re: Remote Power ON/OFF a PC or any pluggable device via XMPP protocol

<r>I have another project (Work In Progress) that is similar to yours, but uses a different 'channel' for communication, the main idea would be to have a Ruby app running as a ZigBee (XBee) 'server', to remote control appliances (On/Off), sensor readings, etc. ZigBee modules communicate via wireless...

Re: XBMC Live USB Persistent

Wow, wonderful news, even if is just a 'maybe', just knowing that someone is looking at it I feel happy!
I've been running XBMC on an old XBOX (V1), still working pretty well (OK, not doing HD stuff, no horsepower for that), crossing my fingers!

Regards,
Nelson.

Re: Remote Power ON/OFF a PC or any pluggable device via XMPP protocol

<r>I agree with both, I myself had such frustrations that you describe, I had so many projects on my mind, then I start losing time with some SW/HW 'blocking' problems that you don't have experience, and you find yourself powerless to continue! Just a small example, once I had a webcam attached to a...

<r>Hi @yroark,<br/> <br/> I've been trying the WakeOnLan approach, but some of the PCs are a bit old and don't quite support this, or at least I never got this to work properly! And for me there is another restriction, you would have to MAP a port forward rule on your router for every PC that you wa...
