Joystick

You can use Gobot with any USB joystick or game controller that is compatible with Simple DirectMedia Layer.

Current configurations included:

  • Dualshock3 game controller
  • Dualshock4 game controller
  • XBox360 game controller

How to Install

This package requires sdl2 to be installed on your system

OSX

To install sdl2 on OSX using Homebrew:

$ brew install sdl2
Ubuntu
$ sudo apt-get install libsdl2-2.0-0

Now you can install the package with

go get -d -u github.com/hybridgroup/gobot/... && go install github.com/hybridgroup/gobot/platforms/joystick

How to Use

Controller configurations are stored in JSON format. Here's an example configuration file for the Dualshock 3 controller

How to Connect

Plug your USB joystick or game controller into your USB port. If your device is supported by SDL, you are now ready.

For the Dualshock4, you must pair the device with your computers Bluetooth interface first, before running your Gobot program.

Examples

This small program receives joystick and button press events from an PlayStation 3 game controller.

package main

import (
	"fmt"

	"github.com/hybridgroup/gobot"
	"github.com/hybridgroup/gobot/platforms/joystick"
)

func main() {
	gbot := gobot.NewGobot()

	joystickAdaptor := joystick.NewJoystickAdaptor("ps3")
	joystick := joystick.NewJoystickDriver(joystickAdaptor,
		"ps3",
		"./platforms/joystick/configs/dualshock3.json",
	)

	work := func() {
		gobot.On(joystick.Event("square_press"), func(data interface{}) {
			fmt.Println("square_press")
		})
		gobot.On(joystick.Event("square_release"), func(data interface{}) {
			fmt.Println("square_release")
		})
		gobot.On(joystick.Event("triangle_press"), func(data interface{}) {
			fmt.Println("triangle_press")
		})
		gobot.On(joystick.Event("triangle_release"), func(data interface{}) {
			fmt.Println("triangle_release")
		})
		gobot.On(joystick.Event("left_x"), func(data interface{}) {
			fmt.Println("left_x", data)
		})
		gobot.On(joystick.Event("left_y"), func(data interface{}) {
			fmt.Println("left_y", data)
		})
		gobot.On(joystick.Event("right_x"), func(data interface{}) {
			fmt.Println("right_x", data)
		})
		gobot.On(joystick.Event("right_y"), func(data interface{}) {
			fmt.Println("right_y", data)
		})
	}

	robot := gobot.NewRobot("joystickBot",
		[]gobot.Connection{joystickAdaptor},
		[]gobot.Device{joystick},
		work,
	)

	gbot.AddRobot(robot)

	gbot.Start()
}

	joystick := joystick.NewJoystickDriver(joystickAdaptor,
		"ps3",
		"./platforms/joystick/configs/dualshock3.json",
	)

	work := func() {
		gobot.On(joystick.Event("square_press"), func(data interface{}) {
			fmt.Println("square_press")
		})
		gobot.On(joystick.Event("square_release"), func(data interface{}) {

		})
		gobot.On(joystick.Event("left_y"), func(data interface{}) {
			fmt.Println("left_y", data)
		})
		gobot.On(joystick.Event("right_x"), func(data interface{}) {
			fmt.Println("right_x", data)
		})
		gobot.On(joystick.Event("right_y"), func(data interface{}) {
			fmt.Println("right_y", data)
		})
	}

	robot := gobot.NewRobot("joystickBot",
		[]gobot.Connection{joystickAdaptor},
		[]gobot.Device{joystick},
		work,
	)

	gbot.AddRobot(robot)

	gbot.Start()
}
