The π is intended to be in a store on a light internet access so I want it to be independent if the internet access is down.
The idea is to have a PHP app on a remote web server with a dashboard where the client can log in and manage content (text, images, videos) on the server.
When he edits the slideshow playlist, he can "push" the data on the π
Actually, the "push" operation would be launching a script on the π that syncs a local folder on the π with a folder on the web server.
That way, there is always offline content so even if Internet goes down in the store, there always is something displayed on the screen attached to the π
Actually, there a different digital signage apps that exist for π but I haven't found one that exactly fits my needs so I'm building one from scratch. I have the ideas but I'm searching for some technical stuff to build up the whole thing
