Google Calendar on TV screen

Mon Feb 01, 2016 10:45 am

This is a rip off of an Intstructable page I found. This saved a Pi model B and an old TV from the garage shelf. As I was working through it I noticed a couple minor details such as stopping pop ups that weren't covered by the author. (My Pi has no keyboard or mouse, pop ups were a problem.)

It is certain that it would be easier with a touchscreen ...
BUT, you could use Google (Calendar) API to do your own calendar and have something like that http://i.imgur.com/rER6hUJ.png (Python/Flask)

I just used an iframe to upload to my homepage to remove all the clutter. Now its much cleaner and much less "Googlish"

I added some instructions on my page for doing that.
