Default Androsign - Open source signage solution for Android.

Hi everyone I just wanted to post this project here since I will be working on it and would like to welcome both Android developers and Web Developers the option to contribute. The idea behind this project is to create a signage or kiosk app for android that is controlled by a web based CMS. The good news is I have a working implementation of this now and I am actually using this in production at my place of employment.

Features of the Client as it is now include:
  • Slideshow style background
  • RSS ticker
  • Weather
  • Logo
  • Digital Clock
  • Embeded web content
  • Force rotation(useful on some android sick pc's like mk808)

Features of the CMS are:
  • Public API
  • Ability to control client configuration

GitHub Links!
This is what the Client looks like.


This is what the CMS looks like, I'm currently using the Twitter Bootstrap theme.

I'ts been a while since I've updated it for a few reasons.
  1. I've been busy with my day job.
  2. It should work as is.
  3. It did'nt seem like there was much need for this.

That being said, I'll put up some updates but feel free to fork the project.

Is there anything you think this needs specifically?

Thanks for your answer!

Is it possible to run server on a production lamp server?

Can you make a apk of the client, I can 't seem to get it compiled.

If I get it up and running I will sure give you some feedback!

If this works good then it's exactly what we need.

No problem. Did you check out the wiki for the server and the app?

My set up on the server is Debian/Apache/Mysql/php5 so yes it should work an a LAMP stack.

What errors are you getting when building the client?
