Reporting problems

If you have any problem, it helps to provide as much information as possible. If have a problem with info-beamer pi, please include the console output of info-beamer pi by running it with the INFOBEAMER_LOG_LEVEL=3 environment variable set. These logs helps me understand your runtime environment and hopefully help me see the cause of the problem. If possible, create a zip file of the complete node directory and upload the zip file to a secure file sharing service (for example Dropbox) and send me a link where I can download it. That way I can try to reproduce the problem locally.

If you want to report a problem with the info-beamer website, please also include as much detail as possible, so we can reproduce the problem. Security related reports are more than welcome, but we can't offer a bug bounty for those at the moment.

History

info-beamer started as a small software project I (Florian Wesch, founder of info-beamer.com) wrote when I volunteered to use a public projector (called a "Beamer" in german) to show information to the visitors of a small conference. I wanted to have a software that allowed me to change content, edit code and add/remove content while the software is running. So basically a highly scriptable live coding environment with a simple API.

I didn't find anything that could do that. So I wrote my own tool. info-beamer was born. Since I got quite a few requests about using the Raspberry Pi to show info-beamer content, I started porting the software while using the various hardware features the Pi provides.

info-beamer pi was available a few months after I started work on it. I sold licenses for it and customers often asked about a simpler digital signage solution for the Pi. While info-beamer pi could do all the things requested, it also required quite a bit of programming and experience to make it work reliable.

In early 2014 I started working on info-beamer hosted: A service to simplify deployment, configuration and development of Pi based digitial signage. It's the result of almost 4 years of running various installations using info-beamer.

Now you can use this experience too. Hope you enjoy it!
