This is an odd question…
I have a beagleboard black wireless for reference.
I am trying to figure out the absolute fastest, most efficient way to load an html file (with all of the power of a browser) on startup. I don’t need or want any extra headroom or ability to browse files or any of that (meaning I don’t need a desktop in the traditional way). Just load an html file (full color, with 30FPS animation and video capability) and that’s it. I guess the closest thing I think of is like a “kiosk” type of setup.
In searching, I have run into a million options in how to potentially get what I want (opening a lightDM xsesssion with firefox on startup as an example). i was just wondering if there were options that were more “encapsulated”.
A “kiosk” setup where all it does is open a website/file on boot?
I just don’t know what to search for or what to look for. I don’t care about ideology or whatever. I just want something that works and is as fast as possible given the hardware. Not so concerned with high-res video but moreso, simple but smooth animation. This is a personal project at the moment, so security isn’t an issue.
I am fine with making my own setup (custom set of modules( but if it’s already been done why reinvent the wheel right? I wasn’t sure if there were packages I just wasn’t aware of that might solve my problem.
