I finally found something to do for my Raspberry (2). It will serve as a small Dashboard server. Headless for now, later on maybe with a touchscreen attached ?

Preparing the Setup

We will install some dependencies, so make sure everything is up to date !

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

Then we'll install all the required packages

sudo apt-get install libssl-dev ruby-dev nodejs bundler rubygems
sudo gem install dashing

After this we're good to go !

Basic Project Setup

First we'll setup the dashing project:

sudo dashing new dashboard && cd dashboard
sudo bundle
dashing start

The dashboard should then be available on IP-ADDRESS:3030.

Aaaaaand we're done ! Check out the sweet dashboard you just created !
