Coder for Raspberry Pi

Coder for Raspberry Pi
A simple way to make web stuff on Raspberry Pi. Coder is a free, open source project that turns a Raspberry Pi into a simple platform that educators and parents can use to teach the basics of building for the web. New coders can craft small projects in HTML, CSS, and Javascript, right from the web browser. Download Coder 1.33GB | Coder v0.9Now supports Raspberry Pi 2! How to Install and Connect.

9 Different Desoldering Techniques - All This first technique is the most destructive and should only be used when you do not plan on keeping the board. I use this method to salvage a lot of components at once. I have a drawer that I keep scrap PCBs and every once and a while, I'll salvage all the parts from them. I find it very therapeutic and relaxing to remove all the components off of a board. You can coat the bottom of the PCB with flux to speed things up a bit, but it isn't necessary. RPi Beginners Back to the Hub Getting Started: Buying Guide - for advice on buying the Raspberry Pi. SD Card Setup - for information on how to prepare the SD Card used to boot your Raspberry Pi. Basic Setup - for help with buying / selecting other hardware and setting it up. Beginners Guide - you are up and running, now what can you do?

Meltwater's Raspberry Pi Hardware In order to make circuits and try them out you will need to be able to connect components (functional bits) together. There are lots of ways to do this, however a good hobbyist solution is to use something called a breadboard. Prototype of H-Bridge Motor Controller on a Breadboard (as featured in MagPi Issue 8) Breadboards are ideal for prototyping and performing electronic experiments. They provide a quick and easy way to wire up and test without the need for soldering by allowing you to simply insert component wires into the holes. Raspberry Pi to Arduino Shields Connection Bridge Difficulty Level: Expert - The idea behind the Raspberry Pi to Arduino shields connection bridge is to allow to use any of the shields, boards and modules designed for Arduino in Raspberry Pi. It includes also the possibility of connecting digital and analog sensors, using the same pinout of Arduino but with the power and capabilities of Raspberry. In order to make complete the compatibility we have created the arduPi library which allows to use Raspberry with the same code used in Arduino. To do so, we have implemented conversion functions so that you can control in the same way as in Arduino all the I/O interfaces: i2C, SPI, UART, analog, digital, in Raspberry Pi.

How To Autorun A Python Script On Boot Using systemd With the latest release of Raspbian I started to struggle to autorun Python scripts on bootup using Cron or rc.local. It appears that the Raspbian boot sequence has changed and these processes run at different points in that sequence. How much of an issue this is depends on what your Python script is trying to do and what resources it needs. The point at which your Python script is run in the startup sequence is vital if your script relies on any system features being available at that point in time. For me this often includes : Network is connected and availableThe /home/pi directory is mounted and read for useSystem time has been updated by NTP

How to Read a Schematic Favorited Favorite 39 Overview Schematics are our map to designing, building, and troubleshooting circuits. Understanding how to read and follow schematics is an important skill for any electronics engineer. This tutorial should turn you into a fully literate schematic reader! Life with Raspberry Pi: Sparking a School Coding Revolution Illustration by Harry Campbell By Chad Sansing Our classroom glows with activity. One kid drafts a how-to article in which he explains the steps involved in wiring a cardboard Minecraft controller. Another writes a branching-path, choose-your-own-adventure story in Twine, a free, downloadable interactive fiction app. R-Pi Troubleshooting Back to the Hub. This page lists the most common problems and suggests some solutions. See RPi_Bugs for problems that are bugs. Power / Start-up

Remote Controlled Quadcopter Based On Raspberry Pi We have seen a lot of remote controlled quadcopters based on many micro processors or dedicated flight controllers, but not many people would have thought of running a Linux machine on a quadcopter! Since Raspberry Pi has been very popular these years, and the it’s compact size and computation power compared to most micro-controllers, it would make a good flight controller. The PiCopter is a remote controlled quadcopter based on a Raspberry Pi. The Raspberry Pi handles all the flight control without using a micro controller like Arduino. However many people have doubt about Raspberry Pi doesn’t run in real time so might have trouble getting sensor data and sending commands to the motor in the right timing, eventually leads to instability.

Download Raspbian for Raspberry Pi Raspbian is the Foundation’s official supported operating system. You can install it with NOOBS or download the image below and follow our installation guide. Raspbian comes pre-installed with plenty of software for education, programming and general use. It has Python, Scratch, Sonic Pi, Java, Mathematica and more. Note: Raspbian and NOOBS contain Java SE Platform Products, licensed to you under the Oracle Binary Code Licence Agreement available here. Mathematica and the Wolfram Language are included in this release under license and with permission of Wolfram Research, Inc. and may be used for non-commercial purposes only.

Water Powered Flashlight Batteries are too mainstream, let's make Water Powered ones! The DIY flashlight never runs out of batteries, water is all around us and will never run out. One of today's causes of pollution is the improper disposal of batteries containing heavy metals such as lead and mercury.
