Try any Node.js package right in your browser

This is a playground to test code. It runs a full Node.js environment and already has all of npm’s 400,000 packages pre-installed, including ioboard with all npm packages installed. Try it out:

var ioboard = require("ioboard")

ioboard v3.0.0

Provides a standard interface to boards capable of IO (e.g. Arduinos, Maestros, Raspberry Pis, etc) and their firmware


An extendable implementation of Johnny Five's IO Plugins.

Implements all required and optional methods, along with the required constants - MODE, HIGH, LOW, etc.

You should configure the relevant pins of your board in your constructor, then emit the ready event.


var util = require('util'),
  IOBoard = require('ioboard');

MyIO = function(path, callback) {
  // call super constructor;

  // connect to hardware and emit "connected" event

  // .. configure pins

  // all done, emit ready event

  // finally call the passed callback
util.inherits(IO, IOBoard);

Finally implement any of the IO Plugin methods of your choosing:

// implement digitalWrite
MyIO.prototype.digitalWrite = function(pin, value) {


By default IOBoard will print a message when every non-implemented method is invoked. To prevent this, set the quiet property of the super constructor args to true:

MyIO = function(path, callback) {
  // call super constructor, {
    quiet: true

util.inherits(IO, IOBoard);
