Want to have several applications with touch screen

Wed Mar 22, 2017 12:37 pm

After months of procrastinating I purchased a Pi 3 Model B, Official 7" Touchscreen, Official case for touchscreen and power supply. My problem is how to implement all this to the following purpose.

1. Want to run home automation dashboard (SmartThings ActionTiles) works in a browser preferably Chrome

2. Want to have a weather report on the screen

3. Also need to have a recipe program

This unit will be in my kitchen. I did a search on this forum and haven't found anything to help. All I have done so far is create a NOOBS card on my Mac. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi,

I think the search is not so good on these forums - I tend to go to Google:

https://pidome.org/

http://lifehacker.com/build-a-diy-weath ... 1784047653

https://opensource.com/life/15/11/organ ... pe-manager

should start you off :)

Hope that helps,

Mark

I also find it useful to search for what I want on Google, both with and without adding "raspberrypi.org." (the search feature within this page not so good).

Thank you both for the reply, I will check it out I hope to run Raspbian, so that is where I will start.
