Run this example from the command line with:

node eg/led.js
var five = require("johnny-five");
var board = new five.Board();

board.on("ready", function() {
  var led = new five.Led(13);

  // This will grant access to the led instance
  // from within the REPL that's created when
  // running this program.
  this.repl.inject({
    led: led
  });

  led.blink();
});

Additional Notes

This script will make led available in the REPL, by default on pin 13. Now you can try, e.g.:

>> led.stop() // to stop blinking
then
>> led.off()  // to shut it off (stop doesn't mean "off")
then
>> led.on()   // to turn on, but not blink
