7inch screen - multiple threads with Python possible ?

Tue Mar 13, 2018 2:58 pm

Hi all,

I'm quite new with Python but I'm dreaming of creating something specific.
I would like to buy the official Raspberry 7 inch touch screen.
On this screen I would like to create a kind of dashboard with multiple "widgets", showing the clock, the weather but also the latest news and possibly other things which could be usefull.

What is the best way of creating these kinds of dashboards ?

Best regards and thanks in advance,

Davy

Not quite what you had in mind, but I used Kivy to do some fun stuff on the screen:

RPi Information Screen: plugin based system for displaying weather, travel information, football scores etc.
