Request for Features

I discover RS with a lot of pleasure, so I subscribe to the donor’s version.

I use the full options like network shares or remote url and works good for me (my old samba server doesn’t support SMB2, so I hack with vers=1.0)

I would like to suggest some features whose could be more user friendly :

  • add some options to turn off the display and turn on, every day, in a file in rs.conf on the USB key, which replace or append the rs.conf
  • create the config files with some documentation (share, remote…) in the USB key when inserted and mounted to help new users
  • umount the Usb key in the script when files are copied to eject the usb safefully
  • when the RS is running and a USB is insert, the script could check if some new files should be copy
  • add some options in the local rs.conf to create some splashscreen, more userfriendly the RS boot

And the really killing feature is to create a tiny webserver which can admin the USB with some options in a web browser.

PS : I already have to create same projet (in french) and push it in a repository.

The display on/off is possible with the crontab and the option like :
tvservice –off # to off the display
tvservice –preferred # to wake-up the display
We should add the :
systemctl stop.service rs or systemctl start rs.service
to stop or activate the rs service.
crontab file which contains the crontab can add some good options.
