Embedded Artists e-paper via docker
Getting started with resin.io
Follow their instructions on creating a new application and git push the following Dockerfile to your device:
The display should blink a couple of times and display the current date and time (while the display is updated, a little red led on its back will turn on).
If you want to try it without resin, you'll need to enable SPI and
sudo modprobe spi-bcm2835.
Embedded Artists' instructions will tell you how. If you run:
$ sudo docker run --privileged jannis/embeddedartists-epaper
that should display the current date and time.
This docker image is based on resin/raspberrypi-python and
- installs freetype fonts
- installs pip and pillow
- installs tmux and vim
- clones embedded artists' gratis fork (drivers and examples)
- starts your
CMD(and displays embedded artists' clock demo if you don't supply one)
