Simple open hardware platforms, such as the Arduino, have reignited interest in electronic systems design as a hobby, accessible to those outside the industry. While the Arduino platform has given us a model of simplicity that enables novices to build their own inventions with components as complex as a microcontroller, even greater simplicity and collaboration are possible by utilizing the full capabilities of Linux and such familiar technologies as building web pages.
An introduction to the reasoning behind building Bonescript is given along with a brief tutorial on the environment and API. The basics behind building add-on hardware is also covered along with concepts that will result in minimal software development.
