Get the instructions & code frompisignage-server.You can further customize the code or add modules to suit your requirements if needed.
Our philosophy is to integrate well with the ecosystem as opposed to building everything into the application, be it player or the server.
This way you can use the best available programs for getting things done, be it making content or setting proxies or debugging rather than getting completely tied to your signage application.
You could use Linux shell commands either from server, or through ssh or using keyboard to troubleshoot the player.
You could write node.js programs to interface with the external world through serial port, sensors and display the information in real-time.
We make use of the proven standard programs for efficient and reliable operation wherever possible like wget for progressive downloading, Dispmanx Pi VideoCore library for screenshot and logo display and so on.
