Controlling LIRC from the web #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

Ir leds

Alex Bain has been contributing a number of tutorials towards the development of the Open Source Universal Remote project. He sent in this tip along with this message:

I’m trying to make a completely open hardware + open source web enabled universal remote (powered by a RaspberryPi). I started the project to learn electronics and it’s starting to take on a life of it’s own.

The tutorials he has been creating for each stage of this project are very helpful and I encourage you to check out the others in addition to “Controlling LIRC from the web” that he shares at the head of this tutorial:

In this post I will cover how to create a web interface + API for LIRC, the Linux Infrared Remote Control project. I will be using NodeJS and a RaspberryPi in this post, but the ideas generalize to other languages and hardware. This post will serve as Part 3 of my open source universal remote project posts. If you haven’t had an opportunity to read the first two posts, I suggest checking out Universal remote experiments (Part 1) and Setting up LIRC on the RaspberryPi (Part 2) before proceeding. You may also want to read Installing NodeJS on your RaspberryPi, where I cover installing NodeJS.

If you’re completely new to the RaspberryPi and want to learn more I wrote a RaspberryPi Quickstart post which covers everything from purchasing the parts to configuring the WiFi. Check that out if you’re new to the RaspberryPi ecosystem.

With that out of the way, let’s get started! ….

We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
