Publish your hacks as apps!

Mon Jun 01, 2015 7:53 am

Hi everyone.

A while ago I startup a project with some collegues. We are designing a router, the xway, where you can install apps, just like your phone, so that you can automate your house or gather sensor information through these apps "microservices".


This is an open source project and we would like to have Raspberry Pi feedback because I have been around for a while and lots of "hacks" have been already done, either for automation and sensing. We created a raspbian distro with everything ready even though it is not necessary to install the xway dashboard

Since there was no way to publish this work we are launching our marketplace private beta so you can package your python or nodejs scripts (or rpi-compiled binaries) and upload them in order for beginners just to install that application to reproduce your work. Invitations are open :)

We also opened a Gitter channel here in case you have any doubts. The issues can be reported through GitHub, as always. Remember this is just a beta, we will keep working.

Wouldn't it be easier to describe the hack in PDF form and sell that?

I meant to publish a code that does a job, as an app, resulting of your time hacking around with the Raspberry Pi in Python or Nodejs. Maybe I expressed myself wrong, if so, should I change the title of the post?

Thanks :)
