News this week in the Pi World


This week we found some interesting posts, smarthome overlays for your home, Chromium alternatives in your favorite distribution and be able to send content from your mobile phone to TV with very little effort. Have I woken up your Maker side yet?.... Well, go ahead!

Video of the week: How To Setup Homebridge On A Raspberry Pi.


  • Raspberry Pi: creating a cross-development environment for ARM: I tried on macOS without success, but I didn't think about creating a virtual environment to compile my programs on a more powerful computer. If you don't want to waste time compiling, this is your tutorial. |


  • How to Choose and Optimise Your Raspberry Pi Browser: Not only Chromium lives the navigator. Here there are alternatives that may not seem interesting at first, but it is a matter of trying. |

  • Google Home Notifications Tutorial: If you have Google Home at home, you can send notifications to the device or receive them using a RasPi with NodeRED. It is very easy to use and doesn't require a lot of programming. |


  • Raspberry Pi As Chromecast Alternative (Raspicast): Someday we will be able to easily send content to our TVs without having to install any software on our smartphones or tablets. Here you have an alternative thanks to the tutorial made by Maggie Shah. |


  • Smart your home up with Raspberry Pi, NodeJS, Bluetooth, Serial and RF24: And since we are with home automation and your programming language is Javascript, you can communicate several electronic devices with the RF24 module and Node.js. |

  • Automatic Stair Lights: It seems a bit complex to build, but it seems fun to climb the stairs of your house and light up as if you had supernatural powers. There are also commercial solutions, but they are quite expensive. |

Tweet of the week thanks to @LinuxGizmos:

Happy weekend!
