I’ve been musing about making a Pi powered magic mirror for a while. The problem is that the typical software is nasty js/python/php stuff and I really don’t want that. Anyone interested in collaborating on a better way?
We have JSON reading, MQTT handling, web fetching, morph animating, decent fonts (via Pango & the UnicodePlugin) and even some neat sound abilities. We could very reasonably run on a Pi Zero W, which is actually something that most web browser based code can’t do well. With a usb microphone we might even do Siri/Alexa integration?
