Today I finished writing the first part of my current project which involves connecting your Thermal Printer to a Raspberry Pi. For this I have written a Qt Class for communicating with the raspberry pi. I thought as you offer both items for sale your customers may like my class (which was inspired by your arduino class).
My next step (almost done!) is to write a Qt app (based on QT WebKit Browser) that can make snapshots of web pages, save them as a image and print them on the printer. With that it is possible to fetch news, images and almost everything and have it printed!
Hope you like my idea and maybe you like to write some lines about it on your blog. I will try to write some documentations and publish it on my webpage (tobiscorner.floery.net) ones I find the time.
I already created a github repository to share my code:
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit, be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Have you tried the new “Adafruit Raspberry Pi Educational Linux Distro” ? It’s our tweaked distribution for teaching electronics using the Raspberry Pi.
