    Looks cool. How did you do that?

    @hypervtechnics a raspberry, which I'm actually using as access point, media-and file server, running a node server with express and socket.io + a few cronjobs fetching my google calendar(s) and the weather from darksky.net.

    The rendering works with vuejs, so it's just a chromium in kiosk-mode and the "design" is just something I thought would look cool.(:

    Autostart happens on lxde session start and as an easy workaround i just terminate xscreensaver before, because I was too lazy to to find out if I can disable it via cli.^^

    @daintycode Do you Plan on making this a "production" ready thing which can be shared to other users easier?

    I wanted to do smth like this for a long time. I am currently working on the backend as I wanna code a complete offline self hosted home system. And this looks like a perfect and clean & simple looking display ^^ Nice work :D Except touch support but thats way later :D

    @hypervtechnics not planned tbh, but maybe I'll find the time to do so.(;

    Especially the ICS-parsing for the calendar is pretty specific, so it works for me and I guess it would break easily as it is now.

    I can't promise anything, but I'll comment it here, if I make it public.(:

    Looks great :) like the design :)

    Have a suggestion for further development.
    Dismount the display frame so that you have the blank pannel. Put a mirrored piece of glas in front, so that you got a fancy futuristic mirror display :)

    Just realise that you are German ... By mirrored peace of glas I ment eine verspiegelte Glasscheibe ๐Ÿ˜…

    Just in case ๐Ÿ˜‹

    @Rohr that was the inital idea, a friend of mine did that actually.
    But for me the whole mirror thing made no sense, so I went for a status display.

    @Sweash I may publish it as it is now and provide some sample data which would come from the crons.(:
    I guess you guys know the default weekend-project code mess.:D

    I'm actually thinking about making it a bit controllable via a fire tv remote and turn it of when i leave the house (aka my phone isn't connected to wlan)

    As stated, I won't push any updates and/or fixes there, it's the state of the art as it is now.:D

    Have fun!๐Ÿงก

    Look into framebuffer image viewer or the kiosk mode wm of raspian...
    Or you also could start without a wm and write your browser into the .xinitrc....should do the trick

    @daintycode Good job!
    Yet, why not do it in English? Even for yourself only.
  • 0
    @Noob now that you're asking it.. dunno.:D
    The bi-linguality with having the calendar German is a bit weird with the days being English, I guess.

    @daintycode Hehe, I try to do everything in English just for unity and interoperability.

    @spoiledgoods your comment really made me laugh. It struck me as someone who, if there is no swear word in a rant and comments, would rectify that immediately :)
