My RPi Projects

I will be adding some of my Raspberry Pi projects to this page

I am not affiliated with them or paid by them, but I purchase many of my Raspberry Pi products from locally (Ottawa, Canada).

Shell script to validate IP address assignment

I was having some issues with IP assignment which turned out to be my WiFi Range Extender, but in the meantime I wrote a simple script.

Kernel Version logging script

I keep my system up to date with apt-get (apt-get update & apt-get upgrade) as well as rpi-update but I wanted to keep a record of the kernel and when it updated so I created a simple script.

Rsync to NAS drive

Although this is fairly specific to my setup, this may be a good starting point as an example of a script that creates a backup onto a Network Attached Storage (NAS) device. It uses the Raspberry Pi serial number to create a unique path so the same script can be used on more than one Pi.

Waveshare 128x128 1.44inch LCD display HAT for Raspberry Pi Great with RetroPie or as a tiny display for time, temp, etc.

Similar to the modules I've used above, but smaller, I picked up a Fan SHIM that I will be writing scripts for and posting more information here.
