Default [Version 2 Release] RaspberryPints - Digital Taplist Solution

(Current Version)
Hot Fix 2.0.1

Hello all,

This is the official thread for the Version 2 release of RaspberryPints the Free Digital Taplist.

Below are the links to the first thread about creating this program and the second link is a link to the first (V1) release thread.

First Thread
Version 1 Release Thread

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.(On a non flow meter setup)


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?

Gotta love it when a plan comes together so quickly

Now I gotta find time between hop harvest and flow meter installation!

Cheers! ("Hash-brown 'First World Brewer Problems'" )

Will there be an "upgrade from 1.0.3" procedure as well?

Cheers!

4 Flow meters and an Alamode on the way! The 29th can't come soon enough

I understand that V2 was developed using an Alamode, however, will it work on an Uno? The reason i ask is i am considering using BrewPi (for temp control) and Raspberry Pints on the same Pi and i would like to simplify the Arduino portion.

Nevermind. I just read through the last few pages of the old thread and found the answer.

This sounds awesome, especially for someone who's building a new keezer in the next month.
