New book: WordPress in the Classroom

Frontpage: "WordPress in the Classroom" (2017)

Today we launch my new book about WordPress. Free download here: http://goo.gl/TXwmcF

The book is in two parts. In the first part I follow the developers working on the theme Twenty Seventeen. How do the open source developer organize the enigne behind 27% of all websites.

In the second part you can learn to build or tweak a theme. Towards the end you'll find introductions to REST API and the WP_CLI.

Linux: Skyprint up and running

So the work printers are up and running via Skyprint. I had to download the drivers from Konica Minolta. Found them via Google. There are two files in the folder. After some test prints I found that the top one was best.

Now I can print at home via the terminal or from whatever GUI I choose.

Easy Info Screen for Raspberry PI

Idea for an info screen on a Raspberry Pi or similar

  1. Install a LAMP server.
  2. Create slides in HTML (nodejs and even pandoc has several nice features). Make a slideshow that'll roll to the next slide all by itself.
  3. Install the chromium browser.
  4. Start the browser in kiosk mode.

How to run Chromium in kiosk mode

Let the browser run in kioskmode. Point the browser to your slideshow:

# chromium-browser --kiosk http://localhost/mySlides/
