I dream of a dashboard

that is in my head … some kind of HUD contact lens or brainlink … I know … but but the dangers!

I’ve been trying to turn this AOC USB3 16″ external display and a various Raspberry Pis into a smart mirror like dashboard to hang on my wall. Orignally, I was thinking of writing all these API callers to build the dashboard but after some pondering, I realized that all of my apps have web UIs too. I can just pull the HTML and scrap the data I want. And using some custom JS and CSS, I can then present the data how I want …

But now I’ve into an issue with stupid DisplayLink not really working on Linux … do I spend more money and just order a small HDMI display or maybe bare screen and controller board?
