We have done some massive updates on the PiDome client, well, to be honest, we started rewriting it a while ago together with the PiDome Client libraries. This client has emerged from a single codebase and is able to run on different platforms.
Currently it runs on Windows, Mac, ARM (Raspberry Pi), and Android.

This clip shows the Client on a Raspberry Pi 2 B and on a budget Android phone. The performance of JavaFX on both the Raspberry Pi 2 and the Android Phone is pretty good. Even for such a low budget phone.

We hope the client is evolving to a nice client to be used. Watch the clip and/or read on to find out the resources we used to create this current app.

    Will this work on the latest 3 Model B version of the PI? How much space would this take on my pi if I installed it?

    Wow, this is very inspirational, probably the best example of JavaFX + PI so far! What size screen is that running with the PI? A 10 inch?
