Here is company dashboard (showing statistics, uptime of servers, etc) setup by Alex Bain — he reports: “It’s been fully operational for a week now and received lots of positive feedback from other employees.”
Here are five steps to follow if you want to start using a RaspberryPi to power a company dashboard. I’ve just finished putting this together at my office. We’re using Geckoboard for the web interface.
Reboot your RaspberryPi and it should:
- Boot directly into X11
- Start Chromium in kiosk mode and load up your dashboard
- Prevent the screen from going to sleep after 10 minutes
- Hide the mouse cursor
