An Eclipse RCP UI pushed to a Raspberry Pi gives you an awesome platform for your home theater projects. We’ll walk through how you can create your own “apps” for your Pi leveraging the small open source PiPlug app simply from within Eclipse. Eclipse, PiPlug and your Raspberry Pi are the ideal way for you to tinker with graphical apps for your home TV.
PiPlug is a small RCP front-end based on JFace / SWT that lets you create little OSGi bundles that add apps to a dynamic front-end. During the talk we’ll show off a few sample ones we’ve developed — including the addictive old-school Zork games. There is even a nifty Eclipse view that lets you roll out apps across your home’s Pis!
You can grab the PiPlug front-end off of GitHub including a few sample applications to get started. Be the first on your block to have a custom app for your family on your home TV — all coded in your favorite technology, Eclipse.
