    Get your frist "blink" LED with Intel Mini Breakout …


      hey … just wanted to share my success!


      I am on build 68, check if node is installed:

      root@fablab:~# node --version



      Install MRAA: intel-iot-devkit/mraa · GitHub OR simply:

      echo "src mraa-upm http://iotdk.intel.com/repos/1.1/intelgalactic" > /etc/opkg/mraa-upm.conf

      opkg update

      opkg install libmraa0


      download "blink" example file

      wget --no-check-certificate https://github.com/intel-iot-devkit/mraa/blob/master/examples/javascript/Blink-IO.js


      root@fablab:~# node Blink_IO.js

      MRAA Version: v0.5.1-18-ge5c3e49


      Your frist LED should be flashing btw connect the LED: short leg of LED to J19 pin 3 and long leg of LED to J17 pin 14


      TIP: mraa/edison.md at master · intel-iot-devkit/mraa · GitHub shows the mapping of pins:

      PIN 13 var myLed = new m.Gpio(13); in the code example equals J17 pin 14 … simple like this!


      any simple other examples out theirs? any I2C easy to start examples?
