When I'm working with my Raspberry Pi, I usually connect it to a screen using the HDMI cable. If I only need to modify one or two lines, I also use
When I'm running my Raspberry Pi outside of my room (for example, somewhere halfway across the city), I don't normally bring my screen around, and while I've managed to run a script on my Raspberry Pi which emails me its current IP address, I can't always
ssh into the Pi unless it is on a static IP Address or I have control over the router. For instance I often want to work with my Pi in a public location (such as a cafe) but am unable to do so.
What are some of the solutions that you've used when using your Pi outside of your room / home?
I'm wondering whether there is a small LCD screen that I could bring around (just so I can access the command line), or whether anyone has had good experiences working with online services that provide static IPs. Of course, any other solution that works is welcome too.
