Keybow reading from host

Does keybow os have a software interface (preferably exposed via bindings in lua) to read from the host it’s connected to?

The latest release (0.0.4) mentions keybow_serial_write; however, i cannot get it working.

When connected, my keybow shows up as /dev/tty.usbmodem01234567891, but I’m unable to see any data appearing in that file
