Subject: [erlang-questions] Reading serial data from a USB Gamepad

I want to read USB data from a Gamepad in Erlang to play a game.
Programs like JoyToKey and Enjoyable convert Gamepad inputs to keyboard input, but they only send 1 character so using io:read would require an additional "return" press to send the input.
Where do I start looking to learn how to read gamepads? I've heard that Erlang ports can be used to interact with the world outside the Erlang shell but I have no idea where to look. I found erlang-serial on Github but had trouble installing it https://github.com/tonyg/erlang-serial/issues/14
Thank you!
