Opensourcing existing apps

Are there any plans on releasing the code for existing Tidbyt developed apps?
I’m using the Tempest app, which is 90% of what I want - but would like to modify to display in Fahrenheit as well as show UV index.
This seems like it would be trivial changes I could make to the existing app versus re-developing.

Thanks,
-Ben

Second that, as I would like to hack the existing Sonos display to show album art too, possibly lyrics.

I would 3rd this, as I am trying to recreate the subway/metro apps that have been released to work with Denver’s RTD. Would be much easier with the examples already seen in the Tidbyt app.

Would love to be able to edit the Stock App for Crypto!

+1 I would like to make a transit app for my local transit agency

Same here. The NFL one works fine, except my team the lions had a tie and you can tell that wasn’t thought about with output. I see their record with the last - (dash) wihout the 1. So right now it displays 2-12- without the 1.

Hey all, the request definitely makes sense. We’ll discuss as a team here when we’re all back in the office next week.

Some of this is blocked on getting our full app development platform out. For example, with Pixlet you currently can’t specify a configuration schema or accept user configuration values (eg., auth tokens). We have a way to do that for internal apps but need to clean it up and make it public.
