Introducing “Edison” – A CLI tool for doing simple tasks on Intel Edison

Just published beta v1 of my new Node.js / Commander.js-based CLI tool “edison.” I wanted to give users a way to do something as simple as “edison blink” in order to get started with the board.

In the future I hope to add much more functionality and get others involved in upgrading the tool to automate more common tasks.

Just run “npm install -g edison” on your Intel Edison to install the tool. Then try out “edison blink” or “edison status.” Something seems to be wrong with libMRAA right now so I haven’t gotten my board blinking yet. It’s in beta…
