A Physical FreeBSD Build Status Dashboard

Intro

What started as a side project during my first few weeks of interning at The FreeBSD Foundation, has become a useful LED display of the current FreeBSD CI (continuous integration) build status, and is running 24/7 in the Foundation Kitchener office, proudly running FreeBSD on a BeagleBone Green.

Publications

A detailed guide/article is posted at the FreeBSD Foundation Blog. The draft of the article is posted here. Pull Requests are very welcome.

Requirements

  • A working installation of FreeBSD
  • BeagleBone Green with a 4GB micro-SD card, a serial cable and Internet connection
  • An addressable LED RGB strip. This project uses an APA102 LED strip from Sparkfun

I would like to thank my supervisor Ed Maste for his guidance and support on my work. I would also like to thank Siva Mahadevan, my colleague and friend, for the help and useful suggestions.
