Create a local WiFi hotspot with a Raspberry Pi with custom routing

Create a local WiFi hotspot with custom routing on the Raspberry Pi

This setup lets you:

  • SSH into the Pi directly (e.g. ssh pi@raspberrypi)
  • Access things running on the Pi (e.g. a web server)
  • Set up fun domains that only exist within the local network, and can route to your services running on the Pi
  • Prevents any access to the internet which can be useful if you are running the Pi as a tech demo, or for teaching etc

This is a modified/shorter version from the official Pi docs.

A series of posts on css-in-js

0. styles as objects

First, an exercise. Can we represent all of css with plain data? Let's try.

let redText = { color: 'red' };

using raspberry pi camera with ffmpeg (hardware accelerated)

Using Raspberry Pi Camera with ffmpeg

Capturing video from the rpi camera with ffmpeg can vary from less than 5% to 100% of the CPU (rpi zero) depending on ffmpeg using the hardware acceleration or not.

On many github issues one finds the suggestion of using h264_omx codec to use the gpu - but it does not ship with the default ffmpeg on Raspbian.

Instead I found that one can use the v4l2 driver provided by raspbian to get hardware accelerated h264 output. Also setting the video size will save one from using a (cpu) scale filter.


capture h264 video from rpi camera

.then(function () {
return client.get(); // return your promise
.then(function (result) {
// result is the return of client.get()
.catch(function (err) {
// common handler for any broken promise now

Create JWT Token Header Using Unix Command line tools ONLY!


Y = Base64URLEncode(Header) + ‘.’ + Base64URLEncode(Payload)
JWT = Y + ‘.’ + Base64URLEncode(HMACSHA256(Y))

The steps called out here should work on a Mac as well. The only thing that might be different is the sed command used below. Instead of using -E, you will have to use -r to run sed with extended regular expression support

Use data from this tutorial:

Explicit Go-style error handling with ES6 destructuring. No more try-catch!
function explicit(ctx, fn) {
return function() {
try {
const result = fn.apply(ctx, arguments)
return [null, result]
} catch (err) {
return [err, null]
