Yeah.. I did that.. I even managed to connect to the PuckJS using bluetoothctl.
Device F8:37:BB:11:74:A7 Puck.js 74a7
[bluetooth]# connect F8:37:BB:11:74:A7

Sadly, Chrome like the braindead piece of software it is does not see that there is a device already connected to the default device and continues to try and probe hci0 and seeing nothing.
I have tried building the IDE from git and got a little further by just removing the requirement of winnus from the package.json file.
it 'installed' fine. But when I do npm start
firstname.lastname@example.org start /home/user/devel/git/EspruinoWebIDE
Usage: nw-gyp <command> [options]
where <command> is one of:
- build - Invokes `make` and builds the module
- clean - Removes any generated build files and the "out" dir
- configure - Generates a Makefile for the current module
- rebuild - Runs "clean", "configure" and "build" all at once
- install - Install node development files for the specified node version.
- list - Prints a listing of the currently installed node development files
- remove - Removes the node development files for the specified version
However, now I have some sort of weird incompatibility with node-gyp and whatever build file it uses.
nw configure .
gyp info it worked if it ends with ok

To be honest I would feel happier if I was trying to debug a C++ program because nodejs gives me a headache.
