Pimorini EInk Project - Google Calendar

I have put together a little script that pulls from Google Calendar that outputs the data on the Pimorini EInk Display. It polls Google regularly and will run forever via a cron job. I have put together a write up on http://emomonkey.github.io and the script is available on https://github.com/emomon...

NodeJS and PI Glow

Hi,

I have put together a NodeJS Twitter application that allows you to read the tweets based on a location, in my case Craigavon, N.Ireland.

http://80.229.21.163/

Code is up on github

Re: RaspPISpyIntranet - Looking for some testers

I think you need to run as sudo. I have been working on another application. This time in nodejs so my Raspberry PI is already running live from http://80.229.21.163/

Hopefully I will have time to get back to my flask application

Re: RaspPISpyIntranet - Looking for some testers

The utility should create new folders for you. The command that executes the web cam is entered on the parameters screen. To mount a usb web cam on the Raspberry PI just plug it in. To verify that your webcam is recognized by the Pi, just plug it in and check that the /dev/video0 entry is present in...

Re: The projects list. Look here for some ideas.

Hi, I have put together an application that is provides a web front end to either a USB WebCam or Raspberry PI Cam. The application can be set to random mode and alarm mode. In order to use alarm mode and infra red sensor (PIR) should be connected to GPIO17. If movement is detected an image is taken...

Re: Camera freezes

It looks like the new boards have this issue or maybe it is early model rasp pi's that have the issue. I got one 2 days ago and it is locking with the led light on when I run raspistill. It cannot capture. Looks like I will return it. I tried the disconnect sunny ribbon approach and that did not wor...

Re: Raspistill/vid hanging,

No it hangs in both cases. The -v option at least tells me what stage it has got to. I am wondering if it's the fact I have an early model

Re: Raspistill/vid hanging,

I am having a similar problem with my raspberry cam module I just got today. It hangs on raspistill. It seems to get to capture 1 when I use the -v option. The red light stays on nothing happens. I have a 256 Raspberry PI. I gave 128 to the GPU. Enabled camera. Killed processes I have running on sta...

Re: Steering a standard servo with Gertboard

Thanks that worked. Now making sense of that PB1 is pin 9 as required by the sweep sketch. To go through the Buf 1 [input] to wire PB! to B1 input. I jumper off the output as PB1 will provide the input to Buf 1. I wire the control cable [orange on the servo] to Buf 1. The ground cable from the servo...

Re: Steering a standard servo with Gertboard

Yes. But the Sweep sketch states all you need to wire in is Pin 9 which is PB1. :cry: So giving that having to use the gertboard requires more than one wire I am guessing I need to use the BUF as mentioned above. So that means wire BUF1 to PB1. Set the jumper over the output of B1 and the servo puls...
