android-signage-server

This is a quick and dirty server for the Android digital signage client, written in Django because I needed a decent back-office and have a deadline to keep.

Core Functionality

  • Devices poll the server every few seconds
  • Server returns playlists (i.e., URL/duration tuples) that clients iterate through
  • Special "alert" playlists can be "pushed" to devices to playback with higher priority than current assets

Design Constraints

Time. Also, for a number of reasons (including historical ones) HTTP polling has been the preferred mechanism to do this. In the future, however, I would love to have the time to reimplement signalling atop MQTT.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
