Raspi-R remote controls and monitors the Raspberry Pi (and other Linux machines) .

Raspi-R extends the use of het Raspberry Pi and it's hard- and software extentions. Raspi is one of the Rasberry Pi abriviations. For more information visit www.raspberrypi.org.

With the Raspi-R app you can remote control the Raspberry Pi by executing Linux commands, remote control hardware extentions such as PiFace, and even reboot or halt the Raspberry Pi.

All this is done via a simple user interface where you don't have to type in commands. Just Connect, Select and Go! All this can be dome via your local wifi-network or the Internet.

You can add multiple Raspberry Pi's. So if you have a Linix account on a Raspberry Pi of one of your friends, you can connect there to. As the Raspberry Pi is a Linux device, the Raspi-R app wil also work with any other Linux machine.

As the Raspberry Pi has a educational purpose, the Raspi-R app has the ability to (re)create your own scripts so it helps you explore and understand the posibilities of the Raspberry Pi, Linux and it's hard- and software extentions.
