Now that go is installed (see Part 1), you can get down to business and start using phidgets. I've written a go phidgets library (currently only
IR phidgets are implemented, open an issue or pull request if you want more) at github.com/samuelkadolph/go/phidgets.
The latest version of the PhidgetSBC line includes an ARMv5 processor which means it now has support for go. Unfortunately the current golang package in the debian repository does not work but I was able to compile golang from source on the PhidgetSBC3 and it worked (including
cgo). Thanks to the
"The Go Language Gophers" team I downloaded the
golang-tip package and built it on my PhidgetSBC3. I've made this
deb available in my apt repository so you can easily install go and get rocking.
