NodeJS, Google Chrome DevTools, and the Omega2 Pro

Happy New Year to all! We’re so excited to share an exciting 2019 with you! Thanks to your support, the Omega2 Pro campaign is over 265% funded, we absolutely can’t wait to see all of the awesome things you all make with the Omega2 Pro.

Speaking of awesome things made with the Omega2 Pro…

Check out this blog post by a Google engineer on using the Google Chrome DevTools to remotely debug a NodeJS program running on the Omega2 Pro!

Shortly after the Omega2 Pro campaign launched, Rahul Ravikumar reached out with this exciting use case made possible by the additional memory available on the Omega2 Pro. We shipped him a sample unit from our pre-campaign test manufacturing run and he got cracking.

The blog post first covers how to use the OpenWrt build system to compile Node v8.14 for the Omega with the DevTools Inspector flag enabled, and then how to use Chrome DevTools to remotely debug a Node program running on the Omega2 Pro.

This is exciting since having access to full-blown development tools for building NodeJS IoT applications will lead to shorter development times and better performing programs. The added debugging capabilities, like stepping through code, and checking stack and heap allocations, are a given for server-side or browser-based development, but are just starting to make their way to IoT development. Use this to supercharge your development with the Omega2 Pro!

$55

Omega2 Pro

An Omega2 Pro IoT Computer so you can get a head start on your projects in the new year!


$85

Omega2 Pro Essentials Collection

An Omega2 Pro and our essential, most popular OLED and Ethernet Expansions. Build projects with a small physical display, that can use wireless or wired networking.


$140

Omega2 Pro Ultimate Collection

An Omega2 Pro and the whole family of available Expansions: NFC/RFID Expansion, ADC Expansion, GPS Expansion, OLED Expansion, Servo (PWM) Expansion, Relay Expansion, Ethernet Expansion, Proto Expansion


$15

OLED Expansion

The OLED Expansion adds a low-power 0.96″ monochrome display to your Omega. With a resolution of 128×64, you can use it to display text, images, and even animations. Very useful for displaying status information, web data, and small logos.


$15

Ethernet Expansion

The Ethernet Expansion adds an Ethernet port to your Omega with a maximum connection speed of 100Mbps. While the Omega is all about wireless connectivity, a reliable wired network connection can be a great addition to a project, and the Ethernet Expansion is a great tool for quickly reflashing your Omega’s firmware.


$20

NFC/RFID Expansion

Bring contact-less RFID and NFC communication to your Omega2. It supports reading and writing with several NFC and RFID protocols at 13.56 MHz. Comes bundled with two programmable Mifare Ultralight tags.


$15

ADC Expansion

Omega2 can now read all types of analog voltages and sensors with the help of this ADC Expansion. Read and interpret up to 4 analog voltage or sensor inputs, each with 16 bits of precision.


$5

Proto Expansion

The Proto Expansion for the Onion Omega allows you to create your very own expansion that interfaces with your Omega. It provides a small soldering area and 30-pin header that plugs into the Expansion Dock. With it you will have full control over what kind of project you design for your Omega.


$15

Servo Expansion

The Servo Expansion adds 16 PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) outputs to your Omega. Connect standard servos directly to the Expansion since each channel has its own 3-pin connectors, making it that much easier to get started with your project! This Expansion is great in any application that requires servos, like a robotics project or anything with moving parts. Given that PWM is so useful, you can also use this Expansion to precisely control LEDs or drive a DC motor using an H-bridge. The Servo Expansion is often also called the PWM Expansion.


$35

Omega2+ Expansion Dock

From the Omega2+ Expansion Dock project.

An expansion board that gives the Omega2+ IoT board access to various modules, sensors, and USB devices through SPI, I²S, I²C, UART, USB 2.0, and Ethernet. Also provides a real-time clock with dedicated battery power.
