Once in a while want to setup a new Raspberry Pi without the need to connect it to a display, keyboard or ethernet cable. The Raspberry Pi 3 and the recently introduced Raspberry Pi Zero W have an onboard wifi chip. This means it can run and connect to the internet without having an ethernet cable connected to it. I wrote this article mainly for myself so i can reproduce the steps, but figured this is probably useful to others.
This article will get you up and running with a Raspberry Pi, connected to your wifi network...
Recently I became the owner of a Synology DS214+. Since my HTPC was running out of space and consuming a lot of power, a Nas with lots of storage seemed right. It was all self explanatory and after some research i was able to get NZBget, Sickbeard, Couchpotato and HTPC-Manager running exactly the way i wanted. Next i wanted Pushover notifications!
As mentioned in my first post, i had some second thoughts about the color scheme used for this blog. It turns out i am not satisfied with it. The turquoise color i used before just didn’t do the trick for me. I wanted a bright color that was an eye-catcher but not too much distracting and still have a ‘mature’ feeling.
Inspired by the Cerulean bootswatch theme inversed navbar, the new color turned out to be
#094e95. I always liked the inversed Navbar in the Cerulean theme but had never used it. I considered using it for my HTPC-Manager project, but never did.
Also i found a way to truncate the post content on the index page so i can use a ‘read more’ link.
Here we go!
I plan on writing here about my development on Htpc Manager and other tech- and webrelated things. At the moment, i am working on some improvements for this site and am still figuring out if i like the current design or not.
