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.
In the last few months I’ve cut more than 30 minutes from my morning routine, freeing up time to sleep a little longer. When I thought about how my mornings have changed, I realised I’ve naturally followed a process used by software developers.
