Pandora + Raspberry Pi!

April 28, 2013

We have been so busy running our business lately that we haven't had a ton of time to play with the devices that we sell.

We changed that this weekend by building a standalone Pandora player using the following:

The Adafruit LCD plate kit is super easy to put together, and it only took about 30 minutes.  Add in another 15 minutes to setup a copy of Raspbian with the right software, and we had a working Pandora player.  We used one of Adafruit's wonderful tutorials to help put it all together. 

What is cool about this project is that the Pi can run headless, there is no monitor or keyboard attached!  The LCD display tells you the artist and song, and you can use the buttons to select different playlists.  The Pi boots right into the Pandora player!
