    Hi all. I’m getting real confused If what I’m trying to do is possible.

    I want to add a node.js library to my project. Is this actually possible?

    Thanks in advance

    If you're talking about a backend package it isn't really possible without having a completely separate node.js process (server.js in most examples) and a communication method.

    If the package is a frontend package that you want to use in a Web project it *might* be possible but would be pretty difficult and there are probably easier ways to accomplish your goals.

    What package are you trying to use?

    I would like to add the library to my desktop app. It's a library on GitHub that someone put together to communicate with a shotbox device. Im just really unclear if i can attempt to do this or just need to figure out the protocol on my own for the shotbox.

    If you have a moment. Ive attached the Github link.

    It looks like V-Control (which is written in Xojo) has a Stream Deck module:

    https://github.com/v-control/V-Control_GPL

    I think you'd be a lot better off starting from this or just using the node library as a reference to figure out the API yourself and rewrite it in Xojo.
