This is yet another web to-do app but designed for 3.5″ screen and Raspberry Pi. The idea is for this device to serve as task tracking device, replacing regular notebook and having to write stuff with pen. Editing and tracking tasks on paper is, let’s say, not user friendly. As I’m a person who likes to write tasks down physically, I figured this project would suit me perfectly as inputting is done via stylus. I decided to add Google Tasks sync in case I needed access to the tasks when I’m away from my Raspberry Pi. Currently, I’m using it in the office on a daily basis and it’s been useful so far.
The stack is pretty straightforward. I created a Flask application consisting of backend and frontend that does all of the heavy lifting. User just interacts with a website, presented in the Chromium browser set to run in full screen and kiosk mode. Both, my Flask app and Chromium browser start right after Raspberry Pi booting is done.
