Appointment Screen

#1

Hi,

I developed an appointment screen for a caravan dealer. Most important feature is a welcome message for customers who want to pick up their new caravan that day. All of this is based on Florians package “Reception Screen” (https://github.com/info-beamer/package-reception). It uses different pages which are shown one after another. For easier daily usage I also developed a windows application that communicates with the info-beamer API (https://info-beamer.com/doc/api) and is able to change the appointment data.

Features:

  • Page layouts: Delivery Text; Centered Text, Fullscreen, Text left, Text right
  • Every page has its own schedule
  • Turn on/off TV at working hours or if nothing is shown
  • Text scroller, that is shown on every page
  • Configurable background and header images
  • Configurable background music (as .mp4)
  • Text is formatted using some kind of markdown
  • Application to change “Delivery Text” pages

Most of these features were available in the “Reception Screen” package before. I had to change some of them to work properly in my package.

Feel free to ask some questions if you are interested in it. You can try this package by clicking on the “Run on info-beamer” button here: https://github.com/niclasku/appointment-node

That’s pretty awesome. I especially like the custom Windows client software to work together with your custom package to make its feature easier accessible. Thanks for sharing!
