Is this not the cutest little display for the Raspberry Pi? This HAT features a 2.4" display with 320x240 16-bit color pixels and a resistive touch overlay. The HAT uses the high speed SPI interface on the Pi and can use the mini display as a console, X window port, displaying images or video etc. Best of all it plugs right in on top!
Kali is a security and penetration testing distribution, preloaded with a wide range of network tools and other utilities. If you'd like to use it on a Raspberry Pi with the PiTFT display, there's only one real problem: It uses a custom kernel which doesn't presently include all the stuff you need to use the PiTFT as a touchscreen. We'll go over the basics of an install and remedy the kernel situation.
One of the more noticeable limitations of the Raspberry Pi is using an SD card for its main storage. This guide details hooking up an external drive, copying your root filesystem to it, and configuring the kernel to treat the external drive as root. It includes a helper script which automates most of these steps.
A TFT panel connected to a Raspberry Pi without the use of an HDMI decoder? What is this sorcery??? It's the DPI Kippah from Adafruit! This HAT-like board snaps onto a Raspberry Pi B+, A+ or Pi 2 Model B and with a little software configuration, allows you to have what normally would go out the HDMI port come up on a nice little flat screen.
Adafruit’s PiTFT displays link to the Raspberry Pi’s GPIO header instead of a video port, making them compact & ideal for portable projects. But this connection normally limits them to a subset of specially-compiled games and emulators — high-performance OpenGL-based games were previously incompatible. New software now makes gaming more practical on these tiny displays!
For transit-bound people, NextBus — a free internet service providing arrival data for over 135 transit agencies — is a tremendous convenience. Knowing when a bus is due means less standing out in the rain…one can use that time inside to get a little extra work done, or finish that cup of coffee. Using the Raspberry Pi computer, we’ll create a dedicated NextBus “appliance” that informs at a glance.
If you've ever needed to compile the Linux Kernel on a Raspberry Pi, you've probably noticed that it takes a long time. We sure have! If you have a desktop computer or a laptop with decent hardware specs, it seems like there ought to be an easy way to use all that processing power to generate a new kernel for your Pi, but it can be tricky to figure out the specifics. Enter the Adafruit Pi Kernel-o-Matic!
