Wii Nunchuck

Characteristics

Johnny-Five Nunchuck

var five = require("../lib/johnny-five.js"),
  board, nunchuk;

board = new five.Board();

board.on("ready", function() {

  new five.Pin("A2").low();
  new five.Pin("A3").low();

  // Create a new `nunchuk` hardware instance.
  nunchuk = new five.Wii.Nunchuk({
    freq: 50
  });


  // Nunchuk Event API
  //

  // "read" (nunchuk)
  //
  // Fired when the joystick detects a change in
  // axis position.
  //
  // nunchuk.on( "read", function( err ) {

  // });

  // "change", "axischange" (joystick)
  //
  // Fired when the joystick detects a change in
  // axis position.
  //
  nunchuk.joystick.on("change", function(err, event) {
    console.log(
      "joystick " + event.axis,
      event.target[event.axis],
      event.axis, event.direction
    );
  });

part two



if (Meteor.isClient) {

}

if (Meteor.isServer) {
    Meteor.startup(function () {
        // code to run on server at startup
    });
}

equivalent to 

-appFolder
    -client
        index.html
        clientSide.js
        my.css
        
    -server
        serverSide.js

 anywhere.js

By default, a new Meteor app includes the autopublish and insecure packages, which together mimic the effect of each client having full read/write access to the server's database.


if autopublish package is removed

//anywhere.js
joystickData = new Meteor.Collection("joystickData");

//serverSide.js
Meteor.publish('joystickData', function(){
    return joystickData.find({}, {limit: 1, sort: {created: -1}});
});

//clientSide.js
 Meteor.subscribe('joystickData');

Blaze, next-generation live templating engine.

// myApp.html

<body>
<div class="container">
    {{> joystick}}
</div>
</body>

<template name="joystick">
    <h1>Joystick</h1>
    {{#each joysticks}}
    <div>{{value}}</div>
    <div>{{axis}}</div>
    <div>{{direction}}</div>
    {{/each}}
</template>


// clientSide.js

Template.joystick.joysticks = function () {
        return joystickData.find({}, {limit: 1, sort: {created: -1}});
    };
