Raspberry Pi wall calendar #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

Finished product first. My inspiration came from this project here: http://imgur.com/a/z94Vr, which was inspired by this one: http://www.instructables.com/id/Raspberry-Pi-Wall-Mounted-Calender-and-Notificatio/?ALLSTEPS

Ok, it’s pretty much an exact copy. I have no creativity, or serious coding chops, so I copied those two projects pretty heavily.
This was supposed to be a surprise mother’s day present for my wife, which means I couldn’t work on it when she was around. Which means it was a very very LATE mother’s day present. As in, I gave it to her a week ago.
For a lot more detail on the coding and whatnot, you can check out the previous projects, as I pretty much copied those. Although I did add a couple nice touches. But basically, I’m just running a web server on the pi, and the index page is the page you see. I have it set so it loads a browser with that page on boot, in kiosk mode, so there are no scroll bars or url bars. Found a script that makes the mouse disappear too.

A python script (stolen from the previous projects) maps the buttons to different keys, as well as mapping them to the GPIO pins on the Pi, giving different functions for each one.
