    Saw this small but awesome nodejs library https://github.com/asmuelle/node-temper1 reads temperatures from a usb sensor
    with five lines of code

    var thermometers=require("temper1");

    var devices=thermometers.getDevices();

    console.log("Devices found:"+devices);

    thermometers.readTemperature(devices[0], function(err, value) {
    console.log("Result:"+value);
    });

    – pretty lovely running on a raspberry pi
