This section is empty.


type Client

type Client struct {
	FirmwareName    string
	ProtocolVersion string

	ConnectTimeout time.Duration

	// contains filtered or unexported fields

Client represents a client connection to a firmata board

func New

func New() *Client

New returns a new Client

func (*Client) AnalogMappingQuery

func (b *Client) AnalogMappingQuery() error

AnalogMappingQuery sends the AnalogMappingQuery sysex code.

func (*Client) AnalogWrite

func (b *Client) AnalogWrite(pin int, value int) error

AnalogWrite writes value to pin.

func (*Client) CapabilitiesQuery

func (b *Client) CapabilitiesQuery() error

CapabilitiesQuery sends the CapabilityQuery sysex code.

func (*Client) Connect

func (b *Client) Connect(conn io.ReadWriteCloser) (err error)

Connect connects to the Client given conn. It first resets the firmata board then continuously polls the firmata board for new information when it's available.

func (*Client) Connected

func (b *Client) Connected() bool

Connected returns the current connection state of the Client

func (*Client) Connecting added in v1.6.0

func (b *Client) Connecting() bool

Connecting returns true when the client is connecting

func (*Client) DigitalWrite

func (b *Client) DigitalWrite(pin int, value int) error

DigitalWrite writes value to pin.

func (*Client) Disconnect

func (b *Client) Disconnect() (err error)

Disconnect disconnects the Client

func (*Client) FirmwareQuery

func (b *Client) FirmwareQuery() error

FirmwareQuery sends the FirmwareQuery sysex code.

func (*Client) I2cConfig

func (b *Client) I2cConfig(delay int) error

I2cConfig configures the delay in which a register can be read from after it has been written to.

func (*Client) I2cRead

func (b *Client) I2cRead(address int, numBytes int) error

I2cRead reads numBytes from address once.

func (*Client) I2cWrite

func (b *Client) I2cWrite(address int, data []byte) error

I2cWrite writes data to address.

func (*Client) PinStateQuery

func (b *Client) PinStateQuery(pin int) error

PinStateQuery sends a PinStateQuery for pin.

func (*Client) Pins

func (b *Client) Pins() []Pin

Pins returns all available pins

func (*Client) ProtocolVersionQuery

func (b *Client) ProtocolVersionQuery() error

ProtocolVersionQuery sends the ProtocolVersion sysex code.

func (*Client) ReportAnalog

func (b *Client) ReportAnalog(pin int, state int) error

ReportAnalog enables or disables analog reporting for pin, a non zero state enables reporting

func (*Client) ReportDigital

func (b *Client) ReportDigital(pin int, state int) error

ReportDigital enables or disables digital reporting for pin, a non zero state enables reporting

func (*Client) Reset

func (b *Client) Reset() error

Reset sends the SystemReset sysex code.

func (*Client) ServoConfig

func (b *Client) ServoConfig(pin int, max int, min int) error

ServoConfig sets the min and max pulse width for servo PWM range

func (*Client) SetPinMode

func (b *Client) SetPinMode(pin int, mode int) error

SetPinMode sets the pin to mode.

func (*Client) WriteSysex added in v1.6.0

func (b *Client) WriteSysex(data []byte) (err error)

WriteSysex writes an arbitrary Sysex command to the microcontroller.

type I2cReply

type I2cReply struct {
	Address  int
	Register int
	Data     []byte
