On Raspbian Jessie Lite, is it possible to show HTML pages through HDMI using node and webkit? I am not sure on the internals of the Pi for custom graphics, so this question.

It is however possible to stream videos using omxplayer and show images using fbi, so I was wondering is there a similar way to show some graphics as well using HTML/JS to offer somekind of little lightweight media control, without using the full rasbian desktop or OSMC or whatever.

PS - Good to know of any lib/npm packages which does this.


Yes you can

You can try nwjs - an open source project integrating NodeJS inside a full Chromium browser (so webkit UI)

You can write all the UI in pure HTML/JS/CSS

    I highly doubt this will work without a window manager. So I don't think it will work on raspbian-light. – kwasmich Feb 27 '19 at 8:23
