FirmateWebClient provides a minimum HTTP-based firmata controller for various hardware, typically Arduino. This extends user's control and monitoring of the hardware using platform-independant URL requests.
Click here to see more information. ... troduction

Support list:
1. Digital Pins
2. Analog Pins
3. PWM
4. Servo
This is just a few of the many possibilities. We welcome you build, extend and experiment with the features you need.

Here is all the code you need to build a NodeJS project and turn on an LED, you can see all the examples in /examples folder.

Code: Select all

var http = require('http');
var querystring = require('querystring');
var url = {
    hostname: '',//device ip
        port: 23456,
        path: '/read_all_pins',//read all pins
      method: 'GET'
//send get request
var req = http.request(url,function(res){
        var returnData = JSON.parse(chunk);
        console.log('D9 state: %s',['9']);
req.on('error', function(e){
     console.log('error' + e.message);
Look forward to any suggestions and feedback!
Enjoy Tinkering with LattePanda ! :lol:

This looks interesting. Is there anyone can help to write a sample based on Java or csharp?
I'm not good at programming. :D
