My Christmas break has officially begun! With an excess of leave to use after all this year’s hard work, I kicked off the festive season with a trip to Edinburgh, where I hit the usual tourist traps, found some geeky gems, and tried to avoid freezing.
Hi – it’s been a while! When I checked my blog I was surprised to see I hadn’t posted in a whole four months, since April. The good news is that I’m back, and I’m more inspired than I have been in a long time to get learning, designing, and programming.
The next feature for my Raspberry Pi Home Hub is a Python script that will automatically send an email briefing every morning. In this post I’ll be creating the template, populating it with up-to-date information, and sending it with Yagmail.
Last month I introduced my new project for 2019 – building a Raspberry Pi Home Hub with Python. Now it’s time to start coding the modules to generate the information screens, starting with the latest news, weather, and Tube updates.
It’s a new year, and it’s time for a new project! Over the course of 2019 I’ll be building a Raspberry Pi Home Hub to display useful information like news, budget updates, energy usage, and more on a screen small enough to sit in the corner of my desk.
