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/
