Python module to drive a SSD1306 / SSD1309 / SSD1322 / SSD1325 / SSD1327 / SSD1331 / SSD1351 / SH1106 OLED display modules. You can get these display stamps from Adafruit or Amazon.
Blue Dot allows you to control your Raspberry Pi projects wirelessly - it's a Bluetooth remote and zero boiler plate Python library. Makes it easy to use Bluetooth. Has excellent documentation, including how to pair your RasPi with your phone from the command line. Seems to work pretty well. Bluetooth interface is only up while BlueDot.wait_for_press() is running. Has a serial communications API, also, for sending and receiving arbitrary data.
I don't see why this module couldn't be used more generically to interact with arbitrary Linux boxen over arbitrary Bluetooth interfaces. HCI is HCI, right?
The matching Android app is in the Play store. There is even a version of the Bluedot app written in Python that you can use from the desktop to interact over Bluetooth.
Requires that the dbus-python module be installed to the same venv. Also requires that the shell running the Python interpreter have sufficient access privileges to interact with the Bluetooth interface (root certainly works), usually the bluetooth group.
A new site, blog, and wiki for all things Raspberry Pi.
A company that makes lots of specialized shields and hats for the RasPi and Arduino. Antennae, cellular radios, IoT modules, sensors, feedlines, connectors, adapters, and kits.
A general purpose radio frequency transmitter for Raspberry Pi which doesn't require any other hardware unless filter to avoid intererence. It can handle frequencies from 5 KHz up to 1500 MHz. Plug a wire into GPIO pin 4 (hardware pin 7) and it'll broadcast just about whatever you tell it to. Has an installation script. It's recommended that you use a bandpass filter to minimize noise on the air. Works with just about every RasPi (except the B). Has a text based menu to control it. Defaults to 434 MHz (international free ISM band). You can even broadcast spectrogram pictures! Can even do POCSAG to activate pagers!
An Open Platform for Sound Synthesis. Based on Raspberry Pi and Linux, its hardware specification is public and software is Open Source. It is fully hackable!
Pi-based FM Number Station w/ basic Speech Synthesis.
This repository includes information and programs to use Raspbian Stretch on the pi-top laptop (version 1 and 2) and the pi-topCEED.

A step by step process for setting up and using Mycroft for everyday tasks.
Broadcom opensourced the GPU drivers for the RaspberryPi under a three-clause BSD license. The code is fully functional, hasn't been reverse engineered, and can be compiled and used imediately on the RasPi.
How to compile node.js for the RaspberryPi. Links to a shell script that automates the process. Also links to some pre-built versions.
The first of several wiki pages at elinux.org which comprise a hardware compatibility list for the Raspberry Pi. You might want to have this page loaded on your phone or tablet when you go shopping for new peripherals.
Sudoroom's wiki page for their community mesh network project. Consider trying to throw up another node or two around the house, join a raspi to the network and use it to offer community services announced via bonjour. Or buy another Intel NUC and use that.
A website with a downloadable shell script which turns a raspi into a personal OpenVPN server. Lets you customize the configuration if you like. Appears to use a hardened OpenVPN configuration. crypto VPN The script will work with pretty much any Debian or Ubuntu v14.04 server you stand up someplace. handy sysadmin security networking circumvention The script can also be use to manage the server so you don't have to fight with the OpenVPN command lines. wireless travel
