Hey everyone! 

I have been working on a theme I named Astern.
My goal was to make it fast and efficient and not too resource heavy but still be pretty :) .

Right now it only has about 15% usage for a raspberry pi3

It is still a WIP but most planned features are there: 
 

Cpu temp, core clock, usage 
Gpu temp, core clock, usage, vram usage
RAM usage


Feel free to try it:  https://dbaker85.github.io/astern/
If you find any bugs or issues, feel free to open a bug on github.
Feature requests are also welcome

Let me know what you guys think.

I like this, its very clean.

What size display are you using it with, and does it work in portrait?

Just did some testing while I had it open

  • The temp displays include too many decimals, might be a quirk of my machine
  • On my PIw in 480x800 resolution, the scroll bars appear on the right and bottom
  • Would it be possible to group the CPU and GPU as mocked up below for portrait screens?

Interesting results you have there with the temperature. I used a 5inch and a 7inch screen for testing but only in landscape. Thx for testing. I'll look into it. 

Hey @dbaka85,

great work! A really nice theme you have created there!

Happy to help or test if I can, mine is a 4" HyperPixel display attached to a PI Zero W 

@Reaver79 Hey I just made a new version with the fix for the decimals in the temperature units on AMD cpus. I did not fix the portrait mode yet as it requires a little more effort.
Feel free to try it.

@dbaka85 Yep, thats sorted it.

Just a heads up, not sure how many people will use it in this way.  When running on me Plex server (win10) which doesnt not have a dedicated GPU, it shows NAN, I ran in to this problem when doing my theme, I had it fall back to other graphs.

Work's very nicely, is there a way I can change it to use black for the background? Grey looks so washed out on my display

Thanks for this. I was already thinking about dual or more gpus. Feels weird to have no gpus at all, but good to know this can happen

Perfect theme. I hope you create more great themes like this. I try create my own theme, but i dont know how, too hard for me :(… How you create this? That is really only from test editing?

Thanks, glad you like it.

Actually I looked at the code and played around until I figured out how everything is tied together.

Once I understood it, I built my own setup, design and code from scratch. 🙂

Hi! Nice theme! I've downloaded it from GitHub and copied in Localdata ecc ecc. but when i try to switch theme in Modbro windows app, nothing happen on lcd (still remain default theme). Did I miss something? Thanks in advance!

EDIT: I did it, :D

Hi i love how clean it looks. Good work. I have a question how hard is to make whole background true black colour ?

 

@NoX 

Hey thanks, glad you like it.
Changing the color is going to be a little complicated as the code is minified and compressed for performance reasons.
I am working on a new version with tweaked colors that will make it a little less washed out.
If you really want to do it yourself,
go to the astern theme folder and look for a file called index.xxx.js.
Inside there look for this variable:

darkBackground:"hsla(212,10%,19%, 1)"

If you change this one it will change the background color

Thank You so much. Now it is my default theme :)

@dbaka85 Not working for me, i put the astern-0.7.0 or stern-0.7.1 files into my “C:\Users\&user&\AppData\Local\MoBro\app-1.0.0-beta5\resources\resources\public\theme” folder but if i select this theme the localhost page is stuck on loading.

Also if i try this with my raspberry pi zero W with the waveshare 5" display it won't display anything. I am doing something wrong?

it is broken for me as well. and i tried it under MoBro and Mobro-local neither worked for me

 

edit: ok i didnt see the “newest release” link i downloaded this one and now its working

@dbaka85 is it possible to change the vram total memory to a set amount? my card is 8gb but none of the sensors says that so it never reads right
