Raspberry Pi Zero W + PiCore + NodeJs + PhantomJs
« on: August 04, 2017, 05:13:00 PM »
hi,
since Raspberry Pi Zero W is a soo tiny bastard with soo little RAM 512MB,
so we can not enjoy a Nice GUI (graphical user interface) ..in speed..
(admit it.. if anyone need GUI.. Pi Zero W was not a good answer for it)

so i guess we need all things RUN on terminal command line.
please kindly to give me away to install this on Raspberry Pi Zero W...:
NodeJs + PhantomJs

nodejs to access gpio
PhantomJs to browse+etc the web in TEXT mode, with java support.

thanks in advance.

rather than use java, did you try the flwm gui and/or lynx?

we going to use it as robotic sir, when its switch on, it would boot and taking command remotely by reading a web page/chat.
Lynx browser does not support JavaScript, python also do not have the luxury of javascript. while all web/page in this era has one.
.
headless machine, so small drop and forget, no keyboard, no monitor, no hdmi, no gui needed.
just script and config files.
.
raspberry+picore has internet luxury while other chip dont, it would be so powerfull this way.
not as PC... if so, it would torture the sdcard for such a low RAM.
for PC purpose, we choose raspberry 3 B.

nodejs has arm binaries, but it looks like you would need to compile phantomjs for arm.
