Web script for a Countdown Media Tile

Thyamine 2 months ago in Media Tiles / Images • updated 2 months ago 2

I wrote a script for creating a countdown image.  I wanted to be able to supply a date (or dates), and then have a countdown that updates each day.  You do need somewhere to run the script and a PC that can be a web server (most can do this without to much issue). 

You can pick the date, adjust the font, the font size, and even add a background image to the tile if you want.

This is really cool stuff, Thyamine! Thanks for sharing.

I see you have some other clever scripts on your blog too, such as a Local Weather Widget (https://www.sleepyweim.com/2019/05/21/actiontiles-show-local-weather/). Great!

I encourage folks here to give the script(s) a try and share some feedback. These sometimes end up giving us ideas for new features that we can incorporate into ActionTiles itself.

Cheers,

Thanks Terry!  Glad you appreciated it.  I'm enjoying having ActionTiles up in my kitchen, and have been playing around with fun things I can do with it.
