Or the Raspberry Pi Zero W (Built-in wifi and BT)
Non-programmer looking for something fun to pick up and do. Came here from the Kickstarter for the Omega2 which I want to turn into a wifi garage door opener. The reason I want to do that is I tend to forget sometimes whether or not I closed it. I put a camera in the garage and can now see if I did, but it doesnt help if I left it open but am not able to get back. Looking to use IFTTT and the DO app to control it from anywhere. Cant wait to get the unit.

RE: LED or other digital display recommendations
I have used this LCD and have gotten it to work with a tutorial here.
This is how I got it working with the LCD
You will need to get an expansion dock, power dock or mini dock or ardruino dock to really make it easy to work with. If you didnt, you can order one from the indygogo campaign.
RE: procps missing?
@None-None Dont know what to tell you. I ran that this morning and it found the package. did you try doing the install with the procps-ng?
opkg update opkg install procps-ng
Mine already had it installed. I am also on firmware 0.1.9 b156 (with all the latest issues, I am not upgrading any time soon.)
You could also browse out to the http://repo.onion.io/omega2 and get the path to the package there and then use wget to download the package and then opkg to install it (when run from the same dir as the downloaded package)

RE: procps missing?
What is listed in your /etc/opkg/distfeeds.conf file?
It is like you are missing a repository.
src/gz omega2_core http://repo.onion.io/omega2/packages/core
src/gz omega2_base http://repo.onion.io/omega2/packages/base

RE: Omega expansion dock out of stock

RE: [Project] Display GPS Location on OLED
Very cool- pretty similar to what I did. I added an animation while it was getting the fix. Just starts marching across the screen. I'll have to upload my script at some point.
FYI, you don't need to save a file with the data. You can call ubus directly:
gpsDataProcess = Popen(["ubus", "call", "gps", "info"], stdout=PIPE) gpsDataJSON = gpsDataProcess.communicate() gpsDataProcess.stdout.close() if ( gpsDataProcess.returncode == 0 ): # gps available gpsData = json.loads(gpsDataJSON)
I must be missing something here. I get the following when I run the .py file.
Writing '+-------------------+' to display
Writing '| Current GPS Info: |' to display
Writing '+---------+---------+' to display
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "showgps2.py", line 23, in <module>
gpsDataProcess = open(["ubus", "call", "gps", "info"], stdout=PIPE)
NameError: name 'PIPE' is not defined
