Espruino and NFC

Posted on
  • Hi Gordon,
    I received the board few days ago, so exciting adventure.
    Unfortunatly, not had time to play with it yet..... frustrating :)

    I have a question regarding interface.
    I have a few ideas that might require the use of NFC (as I also pledged for the NFC ring on Kickstarter :) )

    I found this card that can use I2C :­FC-p-1627.html?cPath=19_24

    Do you think that it could be feasible to use NFC with Espruino ?

    Thanks for your hard work :)

  • Yes, NFC should work great - although I haven't done anything with it so far. I've been meaning to for a while though so I have just ordered a kit.

    Personally I wouldn't use Xadow - it had weird connectors. I'd just use one of the many other things that use the same chip and are cheaper:­2+nfc

  • Splendid Gordon :)

    Might I ask you which kit you ordered ?
    Since Espruino works like Node.js fashion way with 'require' for module,
    is there something we need to communicate with NFC ? any library that could "automate' communiation and NFC management?

  • I ordered this one:­e-kit-PN532-Card-Key-Arduino-Compat-/131­103603834

    I'm afraid it's going to need a JS module writing for it. It doesn't look too painful so hopefully I'll be able to knock something up quite quickly - at least enough to handle a basic type of NFC.
