But they aren't microcontrollers. They are large embedded systems, or in the case of the Arduino, development boards with a lot of power-wasting components on them compared to using the microcontroller in a way that would be sensible for a battery design.
@Joseph-Sammarco are you trying to do OMEGA -> USB -> ARDUINO? Cause I got that working with php and I added a wireless module on there for a wireless network of sensors.... I was thinking of writing a tutorial on how to accomplish this...if you need let me know. Cheers
:thumbsup: :thumbsup: I too would love a precompiled version of the serialport npm package delivered via opkg as I dont think npm node-gyp compilation is ever going to work.
This is the way the Arduino Yun supports serial via nodejs (it also uses same chipset and similar openwrt distro).
I noticed opkg has a node-usb package one but it doesnt seem to do anything. Cant find it on the file system, neither as npm global package or under /usr/bin directory, I also cant seem to use it via require('usb').
