Opening Demo Accounts for Piweb
Jan. 25, 2021 2 min
Recently, I have spent a lot of time improving Piweb (concatenation of "Raspberry Pi" and "Web application"), my homemade set of web applications. It all began with a simple script, running as a cron task, sending me emails when specific YouTube videos got published. I kept working on it, adding features little by little. After a while, the need for a proper web server framework emerged and I switched to Django. Now, the set of applications includes, besides the landing page and blog app you are currently on, five apps :
- FLOnt, a web client for the French Lexicon Ontology, my attempt at casting the French Wiktionary data into an ontology,
- Homepy, a bookmark page,
- Notifpy, a custom YouTube and Twitch client,
- Orgapy, a note management system, with tasks and objectives tracking,
- Topopartner, a tool for planning hikes and storing GPX tracks, that combines with the Android app topopartner-android (currently work in progress).
So, if you wish to have access to one of the applications listed above, please contact me, describe who you are and what you are planning to do with Piweb and I'll create demo accounts for you.
Unfortunately, I am not authorized to open Notifpy to the public, as it would infringe the YouTube API guidelines. All I can do about that is temporary accounts for one-time demonstrations of its features. But nothing prevents you from installing it on your own Django server!
I'll write a proper documentation for it once most encountered bugs will be fixed. Meanwhile, you can use the Spectre documentation as a starter, and check for tweaks directly in the code.
That is all for today. If you encounter any bug, please fill in issues on the GitHub repositories of the faulty applications. Thanks for reading!
