I built this custom night light for my kids as a fun little project. It’s pretty easy so thought someone else might be inspired to do something similar.
The core hardware is just an ESP8266 module and an Adafruit NeoPixel Ring. I also bought a 240V bunker light and took the guts out to use as the housing, as it looked nice and had a diffuser (you could pick anything that you like).
Kororaa Lite is a minimal KDE based system which provides a smaller footprint for users to then install the programs they want. It disables various services and cuts out some hefty KDE features by default, to reduce the resource footprint. It might be useful for netbooks and lower-end systems, or users who want to start with a solid base and build up from there.
It is designed to provide Internet connectivity out of the box and focuses on the following:
CD size (<= 700MB)
Smaller resource footprint
Network-ability (wireless, VPN, dial-up)
Internet browsing and social networking
Broad hardware support
Uses KDE Netbook interface by default (changeable)
As with the full Kororaa release, it includes:
Third party repositories (Adobe, Google Chrome, Livna, RPMFusion)
Firefox as the default web browser
VLC as the default media player
Installers for Adobe Flash and NVIDIA drivers
SELinux enabled (particularly worthwhile for Flash)
Unlike the full Kororaa, it does not provide these out of the box:
Full range of applications (no office suite, PIM, java, or graphics tools, etc)
Build tools required for building external modules
Please test it out and provide any feedback you might have, especially if you have ideas on how to further tweak KDE to reduce resource footprint!
