Modernize Your Calendar with a Raspberry Pi Digital Dashboard

Traditional paper calendars have their charm, but they can also be limiting. Constantly needing to update them and replace them each year can be a hassle. If you’re looking for a more modern and convenient solution, consider building a digital calendar dashboard with a Raspberry Pi.

This project is not only cost-effective but also easy to set up. All you need is a Raspberry Pi and an old screen lying around. The dashboard will display an 84-day calendar already marked with your scheduled events and tasks. In addition to the calendar, it also shows the local date and time, world time, local weekly weather, and a to-do list.

To create the digital calendar dashboard, you can use DAKboard, a customizable display software that runs on any browser. This allows you to easily modify the content by logging into your account from another computer. The flexibility to customize the screen size makes it convenient for any space. Plus, the automatic screen turn-on and off settings at 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. add to the convenience of the digital calendar.

Setting up the software for this project is straightforward and requires no coding. In less than 30 minutes, you can have your DAKboard up and running, making it a perfect quick weekend activity. Upgrade your calendar experience with a Raspberry Pi digital dashboard and stay organized in style.
