@Leif-Bloomquist thanks for the project write-up. it looks very simple yet effective. i also have a leap motion device and would love to put it to use as it has been in a box for over a year now. looking to read the code you have this weekend. good luck on continuing with the vehicle. looks fun. may have to do something similar with a omega on a arduino dock.
Welcome in the onion community!
As everything is smaller in IOT you can not expect the same as on a full Linux desktop/server system. So for the moment the only distro I know who works is the openWRT. So to check there in the wiki is always a good idea too.
OnionOS is full based on OpenWRT and also has a wiki. There you find a Tutorial for the Oled Display ... it uses node.js too.
Check out the onion.io Website, there on the footer you find more useful links.
