Now we will also add the time under the temperature: For this we will combine the codes together. For making this I used the previous timer script. Where we remove some information On the top we put the temperature: 11:00b ( 00 for the first row 11 for display ) The is connected with the code of; ./showtemp. and on the second row the timer. ( 11:20b ) Where I just used +%H:%M:%S`. I could also just use ./Timer, but if I do that I have to remove the load averages of the script.
The name I gave this script is TimeTemp:
#!/bin/bash # What display to use: DISP="bw_tool -I -D /dev/i2c-1 -a 94" # e.g. for SPI use: #DISPL="bw_tool -D /dev/spidev1.0 -a 94" #clean the display $DISP -W 10:0:b while true; do #show temperature $DISP -W 11:00:b $DISP -t "temp: "`./showtemp` #print the current time $DISP -W 11:20:b $DISP -t `date +%H:%M:%S` #idle for 5 seconds sleep 5 done
On Blog 07 I am going to use the buttons to print text on the display.
