    Thanks for posting this here.
    Would you mind giving a little insight in your system? Of course without revealing any company secrets or code.
    Are you also going for a web-framework? Or are you developing a classic application, like the guy at BuildHubTV does? Will it be open to 3rd party apps, even though this always puts a risk of faulty modules or will you close the system?
    Are you using a raspberry or something stronger?

  • @yawns Our application is not really browser based but would be easily portable to such a system if we ever feel the need to do so. Right now we are building a platform to support custom widgets by 3rd parties - though we tend to built this platform on the go. For example, to ensure security, usability and consistency we will first open up a the possibilities for purely text based widgets and only allow computing with system ressources. Later on we will make more options available, allow 3rd party API’s, videos, images and different animations. You have to keep in mind that every widget on our system also has to be supported by our mobile app which will allow customizing the widgets form, scale, text-size, color and displayed date via different inputs like sliders, Textfields, login-forms (to connect other services) and much more.
    Right now we are using a raspberry for our prototype but soon wie will probably switch to a more industrial SoC like we see them in phones, tablets and so on.
    Thanks a lot for your interest 🙂
