ActionTiles and raspberry pi

Rui Soares 1 year ago in Browsers Tablets Phones • updated by Kmccb 8 months ago 5
Hi, 

Ive searched in the  foruns and couldn't find a definitive answer... 

Would actiontiles run on a raspberry pi 3 with touch screen?

If so is there any guide how to? 

Thanks in advance 

Kind Regards 
Rui Soares

Yes,  I have it working on a raspberry pi with an 8" touchscreen.  Basically you just have your pi boot up in a kiosk mode for chromium (or other browser) and then set the default page to the one for actiontiles.  I'm reloading it this morning (since I want to update to the latest Raspian OS) and will document what I did to make it work.

After loading Raspian OS (Stretch).  I literally followed the instructions on this webpage it worked beautifully.  https://github.com/elalemanyo/raspberry-pi-kiosk-screen

Hi Rui,


I'm sure it will work, as long as you can use run a "good" browser (Chrome or Firefox, ...), but I've posted this on our public Forum so that any customers with experience running ActionTiles on a Raspberry Pi can chime in...
