Numato Lab 32 Channel USB Gpio NodeJS Module

Having played with the Raspberry PI GPIO interface for over a year, I thought I should explore options for a faster CPU/RAM and a different architecture to enable quicker device control and more complex software. The fastest option for controlling is using a standard PC and a standard CPU architecture.

Raspberry PI Java and Javascript Desktop Applications – JJR Architecture

This entry shows how to create desktop applications for the Raspberry PI with a GUI written in JavaScript and rendered using the Java SWT Browser widget. Use this model to benefit from Rich Internet Applications and access device hardware and software resources by creating custom JavaScript functions. The assumptions are that your device is running Raspian, a Debian based Linux distribution optimised for the Raspberry PI, with X11 enabled and Java installed.
