The following Python code could be used to display the titles of an RSS feed on an OLED display, attached to a Raspberry Pi.
You need to install the Python “feedparser” package:
sudo apt-get install feedparser
Don’t forget to adjust the OLED wiring values in the “OLED initialization” part.
Then, call the script with two parameters:
./feed.py http://www.yourfeed.com/rss 10
where the first parameter is the URL to the RSS feed and the second one is the number of seconds after a new title will be displayed on the OLED.
And here is the whole script:
In preparation of the next RDA plenary, the DFT interest group has released Version 1.0 “Montreal” of their term definition collection (for better citation and reuse, every term has a Handle PID assigned).
Last Call for Science Demonstrators for the EOSCpilot (European Open Science Cloud for Research pilot) project
Applications open until 11th September 2017
The European Open Science Cloud for Research pilot project (EOSCpilot) project is supporting the first phase in the development of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) as described in the EC Communication on European Cloud Initiatives.
This is your chance, through this 2nd (and last) Open Call for Applications, to take part in the exciting EOSCpilot project, started in January 2017, as one of the Science Demonstrators.
