I’d like to suggest porting Gaze SDK into a Node module. Here are the main reasons of such an effort:
1) it would make it possible to run eye tracking application in browser. Even without a browser, such a module can be readily used by node-webkit to develop cross-platform eye tracking apps with ease.
2) there are tools that can port C APIs into JS module easily. E.g., emscripten, SWIG, Node c/c++ addon etc. The catch is, all these tools require the source code to be compiled together.
There have been quite a lot projects using these tools, some of these are quite involved (e.g., node-qt). The fact that those projects were able to be successfully ported to js indicates that there is a good opportunity that Gaze SDK might be ported without much effort as well.21/04/2016 at 21:43 #5071Max BerkenstamParticipant
there is a gazejs in node. i found it a bit tricky to get started , but I´m not that used to coding on windows so this might be old news for a windows developer.
Here is my worklog for getting it to work on W8:
– install choco from https://chocolatey.org
run the following command to installs .net that is needed:
– install visualstudio: https://www.visualstudio.com
– open visulastudio and start a new c++ project , visualstudio will then download some c++ stuff. thath bridjs needs
– npm install –python=python2.7 gazejs04/02/2018 at 22:47 #7873MostafaParticipant
But I do hope Tobii provides a Node/JS api at some point
