For XDC 2016 I needed a way to demonstrate a Raspberry Pi app that used the GPIO and updated an LCD character display. But I didn’t really have access to a screen that I could use to show the desktop so that I could run the app. And I could not remotely connect to the Pi because I did not have a good way to get it on the wifi network in the first place.

Using the Remote Debugger means that you can run Xojo apps on the Pi for testing and development without have to first purchase a Xojo license.
2017’s first “What is Xojo?” webinar was well received and there were lots of questions. Rather than include the questions in the video, I’ve included a…
Do you live the Linux life? If so, you might want to try Xojo on Linux to see how easy it is to make your own…
Xojo is a superb choice for developing and deploying apps for Raspberry Pi. After all, Xojo not only simplifies making the User Interface of your apps via drag and drop, it’s an object-oriented and event oriented programming language that builds native Linux apps based on the ARM processor architecture for the Raspberry Pi (among other platforms).
In this Xojo tutorial we will see how simple it is to make an iOS App that shortens an entered URL using the public API of Bit.ly. We will use our own subclass inherited from Xojo.Net.HTTPSocket, and the Declare statement in order to use some functions and methods found on the native Cocoa Touch API. In fact, the use of Declare is mandatory because with the new Xojo Framewok we don’t yet have access to the EncodeURLComponent function available with the old framework. This one is a big help in substituting any ilegal character with his hexadecimal value for the final URL’s composition.
We are always keen to see apps and projects that Xojo developers have made for their Raspberry Pi 2 and Raspberry Pi 3 single-board computers. Especially since Xojo 2019r1 when building for Pi Desktop and Console is free with Xojo Pi!
I am pleased to announce some updates to our GPIO project to make it even easier to use more types of hardware in your Raspberry Pi projects.
You don’t need to hook up your Pi to a physical display, keyboard and mouse. You can set up VNC on the Pi so you can remotely connect to it.
My Raspberry Pi 2 sits on my desk next to one of my speakers. It’s not hooked up to any display. I use a combination of SSH, SFTP and VNC when I need to work with it.
