I'm really not sure if this is of any interest to folks but it was a lot of fun developing it

I had a couple of Adafruit RGB matrix panels sitting unused so I decided to get my dev on and write a little code to see what I could do with them

The results can be found here https://github.com/shunte88/rgbclock

Its written in golang to keep it performative

The current version displays a nice graphical clock face until a track is played via LMS.

With a track playing the track details and coverart are displayed

Its just a bit of fun but hopefully folks find it a useful source of ideas

Note that the weather data is scraped from the Weather Channel site and cached so that multiple Pi based utilities I've written can share the data. That caching script can be found in another of my repos "clockscroll".

There's definitly a recurring theme here
