When starting up, you'll first see a loading … screen while PyPortal boots and preloads the font. Once finished, you'll see the title screen. Press anywhere on the resistive touchscreen to display a random strategy. Repeat until satisfied.

Customize it

If you'd like to add your own strategies, or repurpose your PyPortal as a random recipe/quote/joke/affirmation viewer, you can easily do so by editing one file.

Open strategies.py in your favorite text editor and add new entries to the strategies array. Just remember - each entry must be surrounded by quotes and followed by a comma.

The entire array must be preceded by strategies = [ and followed by ].

When you're done, save the file and the PyPortal will reboot. Your new text entries should be displayed at random on the PyPortal.
