Carica Firmata is a PHP client library for the Firmata protocol.

It's a learning project not a product. Use it at your own risk.


The repository provides a library to control an Arduino using the Firmata server sketch.

It is based on the Javascript implementation by Julian Gautier.


Carica Firmata uses Carica Io a non blocking I/O library for PHP. At least PHP 5.4 is needed. On Windows, Serproxy should be used to map serial ports to tcp.


Carica Firmata is avaiable on Packagist. Use Composer to add it as an dependency into your own projects.
