First thing we need to install some pre-req’s on our Raspberry Pi.
<span>#Download the installer from GitHub</span><br />cd /tmp/<br />curl -LO https://github.com/ibm-messaging/iot-raspberrypi/releases/download/1.0.2/iot_1.0-1_armhf.deb<br /><br />#<span>Install the package with</span><br /><span>sudo dpkg -i iot_1.0-1_armhf.deb</span><br /><br />
Ok so the Raspberry Pi is basically done, there is one more step but we will come back to that in a bit. Let’s focus on the Bluemix App.
Walkthrough of the app
The app consists of a Node.js backend using Twilio (for texing/sms interactions) and the IoT service in Bluemix for communicating with the Raspberry Pi. The front-end of the app is built using JQuery, Bootstrap, Angular.JS, and websockets (Socket.IO) for real-time communication with the backend for voting.
The app needs Node.js to run. Let’s go ahead and install Node.
