I have just released LibreSignage v1.0.0, which is the latest and greatest in LibreSignage development. There have been a huge amount of new features, bugfixes, improvements and tweaks. The changelog is included below.
LibreSignage is a self hosted open source digital signage solution aimed at smaller-scale digital signage setups in schools, cafés, shops etc. Digital signage can be used for a wide range of things: Some examples include digital notice boards, advertisement displays and restaurant menus.
So what does it do?
- LibreSignage displays user-created content on digital signage clients. LibreSignage uses web browsers for displaying the content so you can use pretty much any computer as a client.
- LibreSignage has a central web interface for creating the content shown on clients and for managing various other things in the signage network.
If you want to give LibreSignage a spin, you can either pull it from Docker Hub (eerotal/libresignage:v1.0.0) or you can build it yourself from the sources in the GitHub repo at https://github.com/eerotal/LibreSignage. The master branch contains the v1.0.0 version. The GitHub repo also includes further instructions on installing/building/using LibreSignage.
Huge thanks to contributors infomaniac50 and faragher and to everyone who helped test the v1.0.0-beta-1 release and reported bugs in the GitHub issue tracker.
