Raspberry Digital Signage is an operating system designed for digital signage installations on the Raspberry Pi: it displays a full-screen browser view restricted to a specified resource. It shows web resources from Internet, local network or local folders (so you can use the Pi itself as the source webserver).

Raspberry Digital Signage comes with the latest Chromium builds (featuring HTML5 capabilities), so you can display more attractive resources, more easily.

After the recent rewrite of Raspberry Digital Signage, a new build is out. Changelog for v.13.2 follows:

  • operating system is now extensible by the use of plugins:
    • Web Kiosk plugin. This plugin adds an address bar to Raspberry Digital Signage and tunes it in a system suitable for usage in web kiosks and multi-user web workstations environments (cafès, offices, schools, hotels, hospitals, libraries), where people can freely surf the web.
    • To simplify the management of the internal site setup, the WordPress plugin adds a WordPress installation to the system.
  • the New Address Bar extension has been removed (because…) tabtiles has been fixed (and so used as a “virtual” address bar, too);
  • operating system updated (a big Raspbian Buster Lite update has been released in the meanwhile);
  • screen’s DPI are now settable. This is of course useful for HiDPI screens;
  • Chromium issue and a couple of other bugz fixed.

Project home.

Enjoy! 🙂
