Firmata-compatible Raspberry-Pi device API

This is what I have been up to:
I can control all the robot with raspi-io (motors and proximity sensor included), but I didn't wire the UI yet.

nice :+1: there's lots of PWM there :)

not yet. The RGB Leds are connected to a PCA9685 expander, which probably handles the PWM.
I don't know how that works, but I just used the johnny-five rgb led api directly.
I will need the PWM for the motors

! Am I understanding correctly that you've already updated raspi-io to use it? Maybe wanna submit a PR if so? 😄

I didn't update raspi-io. I did create the raspi-soft-pwm package and I am using that for PWM in the engines.
I published the package in npm per your suggestion :)

Ah gotcha. That'll be the next step then
