RASPBERRY DIGITAL SIGNAGE

About | Download | Donation | Docs | FAQ | Changelog | Plugins

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 – it’s up to you to configure the internal web pages).

A digital signage example

(the image is just an example of what you can display – webserver content is up to you)

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

For example, you can display your own advertising site, electronic signs, booking site, queue or timetable management web application or create superb web presentations with Google Slides (Powerpoint compatible) or similar software.

 

A couple of other nice ideas

The following is an example built using Raspberry Digital Signage, the WordPress plugin and foyer.

 
The following is an example built using Raspberry Digital Signage and DAKboard, a customizable display for photos, calendar, news, weather and so much more.

By the way, in order to test the Raspberry Pi’s capabilities for HTML5 3D rendering, you can use this, https://webglsamples.org/aquarium/aquarium.html, as a signage URL.

 

Multi-display

A REST JSON API is available, so any device running Raspberry Digital Signage can be consumed via its API interface. The REST API allows you to command all your displays from a centralized management web or native interface or automation scripts (like simple Bash scripts or Ansible playbooks).
