@Leif-Bloomquist thanks for the project write-up. it looks very simple yet effective. i also have a leap motion device and would love to put it to use as it has been in a box for over a year now. looking to read the code you have this weekend. good luck on continuing with the vehicle. looks fun. may have to do something similar with a omega on a arduino dock.
Welcome in the onion community!
As everything is smaller in IOT you can not expect the same as on a full Linux desktop/server system. So for the moment the only distro I know who works is the openWRT. So to check there in the wiki is always a good idea too.
OnionOS is full based on OpenWRT and also has a wiki. There you find a Tutorial for the Oled Display ... it uses node.js too.
Check out the onion.io Website, there on the footer you find more useful links.
It's less popular since that LCD will requires minimum of 6 data pins (in 4-bit mode) or 10 pins (in 8-bit mode.) Then you'll have to add power, backlight power, and contrast adjust.
This is why people are adding that I2C daughter card (usually $2 or less) to save the extra effort.
Hi @Janus-Sanders, hmmm, installing a package on the Omega shouldn't crash it... Can you give us a little bit more description on what happened? This way we might be able to figure out what the issue might be and hopefully resolve it in the future.
