Count Down The Days


A fresh batch of pi zeroes arrived yesterday and I finally got around to building something I’ve wanted for a while. It’s a countdown that counts down the days until a date I choose made with the pimoroni four letter phat. The code for it is on Github but it’s not much more than two endpoints one to get and one to set and a script that runs on the pi, polls the date and sets the display.

I strapped the pi to the transformer of one of my monitors so it’s always in view. I’m planning to use it to track some of my 90-day goals this year. Speaking of goals, today is also the start of a 30-day blogging marathon so expect some more activity on this site than usual.
