The hArduino package

[Tags:bsd3, library]

Control Arduino from Haskell, using the Firmata protocol.

The hArduino library allows construction of Haskell programs that control Arduino boards that are running the (freely available) Firmata program. Note that hArduino does not allow you to run arbitrary Haskell code on the Arduino! It simply allows you to control a board from Haskell, where you can exchange information with the board, send/receive commands from other peripherals connected, etc.

A short (4m29s) video of the blinking example:

hArduino is work-in-progress. Comments, bug-reports, and patches are welcome.
