You will need a Mac running OS X 10.10 to run the latest version of XCode, which is required for uploading to iOS devices. Thanks to changes in XCode 7, you no longer need an Apple Developer account to test applications on iOS devices. You can also use XCode 6 for this tutorial, but you will need an Apple Developer account to upload to your iOS device. XCode 7 is still in beta and not available in the App Store yet, so you will need to download it from Apple's Developer site and install. 

You will also need the latest version of node.js installed on your computer. Download and install the latest version using the link below.

You will also need the latest version of the Arduino IDE (v1.6.4+) for this project. Download and install the latest version using the link below.

Git Repository

Now that you have all of the dependencies installed, you will need to download or clone a copy of the git repository.

Download: file
git clone https://github.com/adafruit/BNO055-Cordova-Example.git

Next, you will need to navigate to the extracted or cloned repo in the terminal and run the install script using the following command.

Download: file
bash install.sh

You will see output like the image below as the script installs the necessary Cordova and Arduino library dependencies.

Now that we have installed all of the software dependencies, we are ready to wire up the hardware.
