The home automation needed a GUI to control and show the status. That’s why I started working on a small QT application in C++ that will be running on an embedded ARM with a 7 inch touch screen. The project is available on Github. For now I have a video demoing the latest version.
The music back end is MPD. Communication with the home automation (which I’m also doing, in Java) is via Stomp. This is how the weather is pushed.
