we are developing a large project for a touch screen. So far so good.
Bad news come in two forms
- we have a huge amount of files, around a thousand, with some videos (not heavy but 40/100MB each)
- the final project should run in an exhibition hall for a week, potentially without internet connection
now we are developing in
dev-mode of course, but wen we are ready to ship, what is the best way to ship it?
We could put everything on a git repo and then create a package from the git, or any other ideas?
But then, once installed on devices, if there is no connection the Raspberry could complain (we have already seen such behaviour). We remember that if there is no physical network it could work, but we need to be sure and under what conditions.
Money is not an issue, that means the absence of connection is not a mean to cut on Info-beamer fees, we are more than willing to pay for the service even during the exhibition (if there is a way)
We just know that with 90% certitude we won’t have an internet connection there, and I won’t complain since it could even be a nightmare to configure if there are firewalls/paywall/login pages etc :).
And since the content will not change, it doesn’t matter content-wise. I also expect the package to be stable, so no external intervention will be needed.
What is the best solution for this scenario?
