Hello everyone, I bought this small screen
(it's in italian but it's pretty clear)
a few days ago and it's going to arrive tomorrow.
My plan is to connect it to my raspberry pi and then send data from a program that parses common system utilities (like CPU load, uptime, ram available, connected users, etc etc) and display them on the screen so I can always check how my raspi is doing (it has no screen, I just use it through ssh).
My question is, I already have an arduino board lying around, what would be the best way to connect the screen to the raspi? My last resort would be to connect the pi to the arduino and send the messages to the screen through that, but it's quite hackish.
What I was interested in is connecting the GPIO pins to the screen and see what I can work from there, do you think it's doable? I don't have the screen now (yet) so this is all theoretical talk, however does anyone have nice guides to connecting the GPIO pins on the pi without risking of overvolting the board? (I have no problems with the programming side, I'm a programmer)
