I have created a lightweight touch display plugin. It is designed for the official Raspberry Pi 7-inch touch display (could work for other touch screens). I wanted a simple, minimal interface that works well for Volumio in landscape mode and legible at a distance. 2aCD’s mods and the Now Playing plugin are great. But I wanted a more “spartan” interface, and preferably implemented natively. So I wrote this. A few features,
Designed for landscape mode. The official Volumio Touch Display plugin works best in portrait mode. But the 7-inch touch display is too tall in portrait mode.
Good performance even on Raspberry Pi 3.
Touch-native UI, similar to mobile apps. It runs on flutter-pi and no X-server is used at all.
I am sharing it to see whether this is useful to others. Bear in mind that this is in early stage and could be buggy. I have only tested it on my own setup (Pi 3, 7-in touch display, Volumio 3).
Touch Display Lite releases. Latest is 0.1.0.
