Your status page is already awesome, now you just need to set up an always-on wall-mounted display.
Imagine all of the places you can put this thing! In your data center, in your break room, the cafeteria, conference rooms, even your bedroom if you’re that obsessive over your system.
Employees can glance at it and instantly know the state of the system. Clients will be wow’ed. Basically, everyone will love it.
We chose the Raspberry Pi to power our display since it’s simple, inexpensive and small enough to hide.
Here’s a list of the exact parts we used. Feel free to use whatever you prefer, however, your results may vary.
During set up you’ll also need a computer with SD card reader. In addition, a USB keyboard and mouse are required to configure the Raspberry Pi.
Attach the heat sinks and install the Raspberry Pi into the case. It snaps together, no tools required.
We’re building a kiosk, so we need to disable the mouse cursor and screen blanking. Also, it should boot automatically into Chromium and load our status page.
sudo apt-get install unclutter
sudo vi /etc/xdg/lxsession/LXDE-pi/autostart
@xscreensaver -no-splash # comment to disable screensaver
@xset s off
@xset s noblank
@unclutter -idle 0
@chromium-browser –incognito –kiosk https://status.status.io
Enable portrait mode
sudo vi /boot/config.txt
Enjoy the finished product. If you’re like us, you
may will become addicted to these displays and proceed to put them everywhere. Rock on!
btw – We run a hosted status page service. Check it out at Status.io
