Use Propeller Hat with johnny-five


#1

I’d like to use my Propeller Hat with johnny-five, but couldn’t find any information about it. Can someone help?

I don’t believe there’s a Firmata build for the Parallax Propeller, so you’d have to start by writing one. Firmata is the firmware that runs on Arduino boards to give johnny-five control over their features.

It’s probably not the answer you’re looking for, but despite a lot of apparent interest in Firmata for the Parallax Propeller, nobody seems to have actually written an implementation for it.

I was afraid I’d get that answer. I’m a bit disappointed that there is no real support for nodejs and Python, and you can only use some proprietary language. Anyway, I’ve got a GROVEPI now and it does what I need.
