Re: Video Jukebox - Is it Possible?

Apparently Plex supports flinging see https://support.plex.tv/hc/en-us/articl ... ling-Media Not sure if this is in the Raspberry Pi version or not.

Re: Video Jukebox - Is it Possible?

Bit of a long shot, but you might check out Plex. It has the ability to play a queue, but I don't know if you can add to the queue from another machine. If it does then you might be able to do something like Pi2 running Plex Media Server Pi running Rasplex i.e. Plex client http://www.rasplex.com/ pl...

Re: What do people want to do that the rpi currently cannot

I would like the pi to be able to access Skype & Dropbox. Both are available on x86 Linux but not open source so the owners of the software would have to be persuaded to compile for Arm. I would have thought that recompile of Dropbox would be relativity straight forward. Skype might be more effort t...

Re: Why is the installed node so old

DebIan messed up with Mosquitto as well. V1.3 is the one in Jessie. V1.4 is the new release that includes websockets, so everyone who wants to stay near the leading edge ends up having to install from a foreign repository (or compile from source). Not true. I installed mosquitto on my Jessie via ap...

I've hacked your Logsensor.py code a little bit to read the temp and pressure data from my SQLite3 database. .
Not 100% sure but I think pChart has functions to access SQL direct. Going from SQLite to a CSV to a chart would therefore be an unnecessary extra step.

Re: Web Barometer

My only comment is watch out for hard coded path names. I installed pChart in /usr/local/share/php (that path is defined in php.ini) so had to change your direct path to the TTF font files. If you're going to do that stuff set a "fontpath" variable at the top of the PHP program so I can change thin...

Re: PCB routing wizard required.

You could also take a look at KiCAD. It's completely free and has none of the restrictions that Eagle has. KiCAD would allow me to route a 4 layer board, but sample 4 layer boards are from ITEAD Studio $88 for 10, where as 2 layer boards are $14.90 for 10 so are just about affordable. $88 is just w...

I have php 5.6.14 installed on Jessie.

Is zend opcache automatically installed?
Or is it installed and I have to tailor some files to make it operational?
Anybody got any good pointers to web articles on zend opcache and Raspberry Pi?
