hi guys, can anybody suggest which kit is better to buy for nodebots and why?
Arduino (all models), Electric Imp, Beagle Bone, Intel Galileo & Edison, Linino One, Pinoccio, pcDuino3, Raspberry Pi, Particle/Spark Core & Photon, Tessel 2 ?
Could you please tell where can I find detailed topical information about which is better and why?

@viktornord That’s a really tough question because a “nodebot” can be so many different things and each of these devices has their own sweet spot. Are you just wanting to learn how to control hardware with javascript? If so, go with an Arduino Uno. They are cheap and there are tons of examples out there. More interested in a single board computer with GPIO than a micro-controller? I happen to think the Tessel 2 is a pretty fantastic option for that.

Do you have a more specific goal in mind? Tell us about it.

+1 to that
Though I did make a kit https://www.sparkfun.com/products/13847
With a guide
If you're leaning, but it's far more money than just an arduino
