Iivari is a digital signage system designed for schools. The goal of the project is to provide simple and easy to use tool to broadcast information inside schools. For example, changes to classes, exam schedules, lunch menu, showcase for works done in art classes, etc. The focus is on texts and images - audio and video are not supported.
All slides are fullscreen slides and the slides cannot be split in smaller sections. The slides are static and there are no transitional effects. There are multiple slide layouts and adding them is fairly easy.
Available slide layouts:
text only (fullscreen)
text on the left, image on the right
text on the right, image on the left
embedded external webpage (URL)
Iivari is built using Rails 3 and it uses HTML5 on the client side. Currently admin users can be authenticated only against an LDAP server, but there are plans to make it more flexible. The development of Iivari has been done in parallel with Puavo.
