Default [Initial Release] RaspberryPints - Digital Taplist Solution

We're happy to announce the impending release of RaspberryPints, a free digital taplist solution. After posting a feeler thread, I found myself amidst a 500 post thread juggernaut. Luckily, it also resulted in the accidental recruitment of a tight group of 8-10 volunteers, who will help see this project through!

Suffice to say, we've heard your interest, incorporated many of your feature requests, and committed to an initial release date! For those not yet spun up on RPints yet, please read on...


--------------------------------------------------





What is RaspberryPints?

RaspberryPints (or RPints) is a digital upgrade to the conventional chalkboard taplist, created just for the home brewer. Display your current beers on tap with a sleek, digital presentation. Manage your beers, recipes, kegs, and taps with our built-in tracking system.


Why should I choose RaspberryPints over the competition?

We've purpose built RPints from the ground up to run on minimalist hardware, some of which you probably already own. We include a simple, intuitive administrative interface to allow for easy management of everything behind-the-scenes. Most importantly, we'll provide you with all the software code, images and instructions you need, free of charge -- we don't know of any comparable free alternatives!


How much does the hardware cost?

The core hardware consists of a Raspberry Pi, an ARM GNU/Linux mini computer, which usually costs about $40 (incl shipping). You'll also need a video display (PC monitor or TV), a video cable, a micro USB charger, wireless a keyboard/mouse with unified receiver, a USB Wi-Fi adapter, an SD card and an SD card reader. Starting from scratch, most users will spend less than $100 for everything.


What skills are required and how long does setup take?

Installation couldn't be simpler, requiring only basic computer skills. Your ability to complete the build is dependent entirely on your ability to follow step-by-step instructions and enter provided commands. An entire build, install and configuration will take less than one day.


How do I get started?

It's Aaaaaallliiiveeee!

We've had a great time working on this project. Several of the developers have run into life commitments that take away most of our development time for the time being. We've somehow found time to pump out two hotfixes, and they're live in the most recent version. For the coming weeks, development will be slowed while we work to get back to normal.

If you're installing for the first time and use our instructions, you'll automatically have all hotfixes and patches applied. If you downloaded previous versions, you can download the newest version and simply overwrite the files you have. Your beers and configurations will not be changed.

Got a great idea?

Let us know! Submit your feature request here:

http://raspberrypints.com/suggestion/

While feedback and feature requests in this thread are welcome, we'll be using the website to gauge which features the public is most interested in.

Sounds awesome. That sounds surprisingly cheap compared to what I would have thought this would cost.

I can see it now, all of our SWMBO's are gonna be pissed that we're more excited and anticipating the 20th of February rather than the 14th. Haha

Can't wait for this to go live. It will be a bummer to loose the web out in the garage. I've brewed a couple times since setting up the RPi in the garage and its nice to surf while brewing.
And thanks for all the hard work everyone put into this.
