# sorting-hat
A sorting hat, sorts you to a variety of sets of 4
# Sorting Hat
A sorting hat, sorts you to a variety of sets based on the assignment of
mind waves.
## Usage
This package can be used as a standalone executable or as a library
inside other node applications
### As an executable
It can be used as a local or global installation
#### Local Install
$ npm install sorting-hat
$ npx sorting-hat
#### Global Install
$ npm install -g sorting-hat
$ sorting-hat
#### Overriding configuration in the binary
The binary uses environment variables to override the defaults
* `SORTING_HAT_DEVICE_LOCATION`: The path from where we'll listen to the
mindwave, defaults to `/dev/tty.MindWaveMobile-SerialPo`
* `SORTING_HAT_MAPPING_STRATEGY`: The strategy used to sort the waves,
it defaults to `tmnt`. That is also the only supported value as of
right now
* `SORTING_HAT_PORT`: The port on which we'll start the websocket server
to send state updates to the frontends
### As a Library
You can include it in other libraries by requiring the file. For more
information on the public API and the used data structures, please check
'use strict';
const sortingHat = new SortingHat({
deviceLocation: '/dev/tty.MindWaveMobile-SerialPo',
mappingStrategy: 'tmnt',
port: 1987
At the moment it's not built right, so you can't really do much with
this mode. But you can do it.
## Further Improvements
* Give independent weights to each wave and category so we can balance
* Allow actual use as a library
'use strict';
const Config = require('../config/config');
const SortingHat = require('..');
const internals = {
// Main entry point of the application
run() {
const sortingHat = new SortingHat(Config);
