Show if someone want to talk to me

Mon Jul 15, 2019 8:56 pm

Hi
I trying to see if that is possible to make so a LED or something else show with a Raspberry if someone want to talk to me on Steam

It have happend sometime now that I watching TV and when I go to the computer I have some call from Steam (Even discord) that I have miss that friends want to play a game.


I have use my mobile to see but I wonder if I can run a raspberry Pi Zero or something to show LED if someone want to talk to me
I was thinking first try with Steam and they have some API but I can't find any good that I can use so I wonder if someone here have done anything like that I want to do?

You want a notification while you are watching TV to go play video games? Perhaps there is an issue here larger than the Pi can resolve? Get some air.

Well after a day hard work is nice to relax and play a game or watch TV.
But I like to play with friends and they are not always online when I'm at the computer so is that why I like to see if I can do something about it.

They could always ring though they may get engaged if you are on that interweb thingy :lol:

If you have a web page you could look at the Python BeautifulSoup soup module (no joke - that is it’s name) and see if you can scrape anything.
Need Pi spray - these things are breeding in my house...
