A quantified selfie for participants of MakeZurich and other hacky events
A quick and fun "minimal" idea. See also the backstory on Oleg's blog.
Like many good things it started in a workshop at Bitwäscherei:
(that's us with Urs and Kurt in the picture)
Plug in your node, which at some point does
Make a GIF with some nice logos, in the future bake in some texts and TTN graphs ...
(We have lots of plans, you see)
Lastly, upload the whole thing as a Drib to our platform ...
In the future this can be really cool .. and shareable :)

A MakeZurich 2023 hackathon project to explore ideas with embedded hardware and quantified self.
You need to have tkinter on your system:
In Arch, Tk is available in the Arch repository. You don't need aur for this, just type on the terminal:
sudo pacman -S tk
If you are on a Debian, Ubuntu or another Debian-based distro, just type on the terminal:
sudo apt-get install tk
sudo dnf install tk
Possibly some other dependencies... let us know if you have trouble here!
Run the Python program
Make sure you have Python 3.10+ and Poetry installed, then:
Or use your virtual environment manager (venv etc.) of choice, e.g.:
pipenv shell pip3 install -r requirements.txt
To get dependencies, and finally:
To fire up the app!
