How to Control a Raspberry Pi Using WhatsApp

Raspberry Pi might be a new term for many of our users. Thus, before we move further and learn how to control a Raspberry Pi using WhatsApp, I would like to illustrate some information on Raspberry Pi first, and then we will learn what’s the need of controlling Raspberry Pi using Whatsapp and how do we actually do that.

Without knowing the real definition of Raspberry Pi, it will be truly unfair to start the guide for those who are not aware of the term Raspberry Pi!

The Raspberry Pi is a very small credit card-sized computer that functions everything from learning to programming and listening to music. Although it’s very small in size, it helps explore computing to the people of every age group. You can learn languages like Scratch and Python on this little device.

If you have questions like how to work on a device that is that small in size, then let me clear your doubts. We plug in Raspberry Pi to the computer, Tv, and other supported device and it uses the standard keyboard and mouse for typing and pointing purpose.

This device, however, is very useful but due to its small size and the way it functions(plugin into TV, computer, and other devices), it’s very difficult to keep track of its temperature, disk space, and its overall condition in the real-time.

But we have a simple workaround for this problem. If we connect Raspberry Pi to Whatsapp, you won’t have to bother about anything. The Raspberry Pi will itself tell you about its condition by messaging. Sounds interesting, isn’t it? Let’s find out how do we do that.

How to Control a Raspberry Pi Using WhatsApp:

We control a Raspberry Pi by using a tool called Yowsup. Yowsup is basically a python library that offers all the features of Whatsapp on the Raspberry Pi. It functions exactly the same on a Raspberry Pi as a Whatsapp client works on a smartphone.

But one thing which you require before installing Yowsup on Raspberry Pi is Raspberry Pi B or B+ Installed that runs Raspbian on it. if you don’t have that installed on your computer, you better go off and stop reading further right here.

And if you have  Raspberry Pi B or B+ Installed on your computer, continue reading the rest of the guide. Now let’s go through the steps for controlling Raspberry Pi via Whatsapp.

Step 1. The first step as said earlier is to install the Yowsup python library on Raspberry Pi. But before doing that, it is recommended to upgrade all the previous packages installed in Raspberry Pi.

To update the previously installed packages, you need to run the following command.

 sudo apt-get update
How to Control a Raspberry Pi using WhatsApp

Step 2. Once all the packages are updated, you need to update the firmware. A command for the same is given below.

Command:- sudo rpi-update

 Step 3. After upgrading previously installed packages, it’s time to install all the necessary new packages on Raspberry Pi, which are required to install to Yowsup.

Commands to download those necessary packages are given below.

sudo apt-get install python-dateutil

sudo apt-get install python-setuptools

sudo apt-get install python-dev

sudo apt-get install libevent-dev
sudo apt-get install ncurses-dev

How to Control a Raspberry Pi using WhatsApp

Step 4. Now its time to install the downloaded Yowsup library. For this, run the following command to download the library.

git clone git://github.com/tgalal/yowsup.git

Step 5. Once the Yowsup library downloaded, you need to install it. The following command will help you get into the Yowsup folder and install the library successfully.

cd yowsup

sudo python setup.py install

Step 6. Once the installation of the Yowsup library is done successfully, we need to register the WhatsApp. For this, you need to know your country code(cc), mobile country code(MCC) and mobile network code(mnc).

If you don’t know your cc, MCC and mnc, use the following command to know about it.

python yowsup-cli registration –requestcode sms –phone 91 xxxxxxxxxx –cc 91 –mcc 405 –mnc 035

Write the complete number replacing the xxx with the original digits. 91 is the country code that should be replaced with your country code. Similarly, other details can be different depending upon your details.

Step 7. As sooner you run that command, all the requested data will show up as the result and you will get the code on your mobile. Now you need to enter that code to register the Whatsapp using the following command.

python yowsup-cli registration --register xxx-xxx --phone 91xxxxxxxxxx --cc 91

Replace xxx-xxx with the code you received on your mobile. With that, registration would be completed. But remember, don’t use the same number you use for your daily Whatsapp messaging. One Whatsapp number can be used only in one device.

Step 8. Okay, it’s now time to use the Whatsapp. The process is simple. All you need to do is to enter your phone number and password. You need to save the config file inside the Yowsup folder using the following command.

sudo nano /home/pi/yowsup/config

Step 9. Once done, quickly copy the following command and paste it into the config file.

## Actual config starts below ##

  cc=39 #if not specified it will be autodetected

  phone=39xxxxxxxxxx

  password=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Step 10. Now navigate to the Yowsup folder by the following command,

cd /home/pi/yowsup

And start yowsup-cli demos. Command for the same is given below.

yowsup-cli demos –yowsup –config config

As sooner you do this, you will be encountered with Yowsup prompt. Now first use ‘/L’ command for login. If you are confused about the commands, use the “/help” command to see all the available commands.

Okay, after using the /L command, enter the login credential which you saved in the config file.

If you want to send a message to the desired number, use the following command.

/message send 39xxxxxxxxxx "This is an exmaple message sent from Raspberry Pi"
How to Control a Raspberry Pi using WhatsApp

The message sent will be displayed on the Raspberry Pi. So that’s how to control a Raspberry Pi using WhatsApp.

how-to-hide-friends-list-on-facebook

Don’t tell me that you can live without Facebook!

Over these past years, Facebook has made a huge impact on our lives with its addictive mechanism. During the initial time, Facebook didn’t make many steps towards the privacy of its users. With time, people understood it and complained about the same.

And now, I can assure you of the privacy of Facebook.

Sometimes, we have to hide our friends from the public and of course from our individual friends. That’s why you need a tutorial on how to hide friends list on Facebook.

Even if you don’t need a guide to hide friends on Facebook, bookmark this post now as no one knows when it will be useful.

How to Hide Friends List on Facebook?

Facebook has become a large platform with a lot of settings to deal with. Of course, it is cutting the mustard in every aspect. But chances are you will become confused to find out the perfect option that helps you to hide your friend list.

But don’t worry anymore!

I have come alongside you to walk through the entire process so that you will get to know how to hide your friends on Facebook.

Before going directly to the meat of this post, let me tell you why it is so significant to hide your friend’s list on Facebook.

Why should You Hide Your Friends on Facebook?

Hiding your Facebook friends has only one motive; prevent retards from misusing it. If you are a girl, you might have faced this situation many times. Some of your female friends get requests from an unknown person, or you get many.

Why does this happen?

Only because people don’t know how to hide friends on FB. Even if they know, they don’t care to enable the same.

So always make sure to take enough precautions to keep your privacy.

With that being said, let us move forward to the next section which will help you to hide friends on Facebook.

How do I Hide My Friends List on Facebook?

Method 1: Directly from Timeline

This question won’t haunt you as chaos anymore. Here comes the solution.

Follow the steps given below carefully to understand how to hide friend list on Facebook.

Step 1: Visit Facebook and log in to your account. You will see your homepage with newsfeeds. This is not the place we want.

Step 2: Locate your first name from the navigation bar given on the top. Don’t hesitate to click on the same.

how-to-hide-friends-list-on-facebook

Step 3: Go to friends from the navigation menu or from the left sidebar.

Step 4: At first glance, you can’t find any options right to the ‘Friends’ label. But you will get a down headed arrow-like icon by moving your mouse pointer towards the label. Click it.

Step 5: You will now get an option saying ‘Edit Privacy’. Don’t hesitate to use it.

how-to-hide-friends-list-on-facebook

Step 6: Now, you can see three options. The first one adjusts the privacy of your friends, the second one the people whom you follow and the third one, your followers.

how-to-hide-friends-list-on-facebook

I set the privacy for as Public. That’s why you see that option with a globe icon. Click on it to switch between the privacy settings.

Step 7: Apart from the public, three main choices are there- Friends, Only Me and Custom. Apparently, your friends can only the list if you choose it. Only Me is for those who don’t even think of sharing friends list with anyone.

And Custom can be set up at your own wish. If you have any specific lists of friends, you can select it here. Once done, they will be the only ones seeing your friends list.

Hurray! You now know how to hide friends list on Facebook. The following step is not mandatory. But it will help you to view your profile as others.

Step 8: Click that blue button that says View As. Then, you can start a black bar on top of the screen from where you can switch between people.

how-to-hide-friends-list-on-facebook

If you want to see your timeline as a particular person, click View as Specific Person and then enter his/ her name. Use the close button to dismiss the view.

That was one of the easy methods to hide your friends on Facebook. The next one is another method using which you can also verify whether the privacy change has been taken place or not.

Method 2: From Activity Log

Most of the steps are the same. Even if you followed the first method, go through this to check whether your changes took place or not.

Step 1: You have to access the activity log first.

how-to-hide-friends-list-on-facebook

It can be done in two ways; you can spot it from the timeline and the down headed arrow on the blue navigation bar.

Step 2: Once you get the activity log, click More (figure out the correct option from the image).

how-to-hide-friends-list-on-facebook

Step 3: Find out Friends from the upcoming list and click it.

Step 4: Now, on top, you can check ‘Who can see your friend list’? Verify that it is the same as you changed to. Even if you haven’t changed yet, it is possible to switch to your desired option from there.

how-to-hide-friends-list-on-facebook

That’s all. But you will not get an option to view your profile as others in this method. Use the first method to get so.

I hope your quest to know how to hide friends on Facebook ended up here.

A recent survey done this year revealed that Snapchat gets more than 1 billion video views a day. Being started in 2011, it has achieved a lot in just five years.

The guys behind Snapchat are so confident about their future that they denied a $3 billion deal from Facebook lately. The social media giant (FB) launched a similar app called Slingshot after the denial, but it didn’t work out as expected and failed miserably.

free-tv-online

Don’t tell me that you hate watching TV!

Nine out of ten people love to watch TV shows. But what if you are limited in an environment where you can’t get a TV? Can you miss your favorite TV shows?

But from this moment you are not going to miss any TV show because I am here with a guide to show you how to watch TV online.

I know it’s better said than done. A lot of TV channels are there in every country and even in every locality. So, incorporating all the channels in one platform is a tedious task and almost impossible. Also, take a look at the blog post explaining to you how to get Netflix on TV.

How to Watch TV Online

Instead of introducing a single system that allows you to watch TV shows online for free, I will be sharing a set of websites. You can watch shows online free through each of them.

If you find any issue on one website, move on to the next one to watch TV online free.

#1. HotStar

How-to-Watch-TV-Online

HotStar is relatively new to this TV streaming field. But the hands behind this website are not new to the TV domain. Do you know the Star network? The same company owns HotStar as well.

Along with TV shows and movies, this service allows you to watch sports live as well. The best thing I like about this one is you don’t have to be a registered user to immerse yourself in the magical world of TV shows and movies.

On top, you will see a perfectly crafted navigation bar that includes links to different genres, movies, TV shows, sports and languages along with a search field, which will ease your quest to find favorite movies.

Most of the time, you will get what you want from the featured content on the homepage itself. If you just scroll down, you can see some other popular shows and movies too.

#2. BoxTV

How-to-Watch-TV-Online

The next pick in our article on how to watch live TV online is BoxTV, which was making waves until the launch of Hotstar. Though the grace has faded a bit, BoxTV offers a similar kind of free TV streaming experience as in HotStar.

The top-most navigation is spared for the small but beautiful header logo, links to TV and Movies along with an intelligent search using which you can search for movies, genres and actors as well.

The slider here grabs the attention of a lot of eyeballs because all the posters are designed in a spellbinding manner.

You will get TV shows and movies in all the Indian languages and English also. So, this deserves a spot in your bookmark bar.

A paid subscription option is available for those who want to take watching free TV shows online to another level.

The language selection can be done from the secondary blue navigation bar placed just beneath the slider.

#3. Crackle

How-to-Watch-TV-Online

Are you looking for a way to get all the English series episodes in one place? Then, Crackle is the best website for you as it contains English serials only. If you like to peek at the site’s matrices, you will find that this one has got a high PR and good ranking. So no way for it to be a scam.

The first thing you notice on this website is the design itself. Their team has done an exceptional job of creating a minimalistic yet beautiful and functional design.

On the homepage, you can see a featured slider that contains links to different episodes of an exclusive Crackle show. The content below is also occupied by the same show episodes.

Unlike most of the other TV streaming websites, this one has an FAQ link on the navigation bar that kicks all your doubts off your mind.

Even though you can get some added benefits by signing up, you can stream shows without being a registered member.

Use the search form given above to find your favorite shows like a breeze.

#4. TVPlayer

How-to-Watch-TV-Online

TVPlayer is another best online live TV streaming website to entertain you. Seeing their homepage is a sheer pleasure as it is built in a breathtaking manner.

On the homepage, you can see a top navigation bar with links to the TV guides, channels, apps, etc. If you are not ready to waste time on anything, click on that big blue watch now button. You will be directed to a TV-like interface then.

The very first thing their system does is checking your location because they only allow live streaming for UK people only. If you are desperate to see their content and you are not living in the UK, you can make use of proxies or similar stuff for it.

The top navigation bar has a Plus link that enables you to purchase their premium version for more features.

#5. BlinkBox

How-to-Watch-TV-Online

You have to be disappointed here if you are not a UK native because this one is not available for everyone in the world.

The top navigation bar contains three beautifully crafted dropdown menus that let you browse through TV, movies, genres, latest and best selling as well.

A search form is also given to help you make the quest for a singular movie easier.

The homepage has a number of featured shows that are popular on BlinkBox. As I already said, this service is available for UK people only even if anyone can visit the website.

You need to login to watch free movies online. If you are a UK native and ready to give your email for the best TV streaming service, you are good to go.

You can also stream the best entertainment using Apple TV. Using Apple TV, you can easily stream services like Netflix, Hulu, HBO Now which provides you with high-quality entertainment in your living rooms. Here is how to setup Apple TV.

Bottom Line

I hope you now know how to watch TV online. Tons of websites are there that claim to provide the best TV viewing experience ever. But about 75% of them are scam and loaded with unwanted ads. Good entertainment services ask for the paid subscription and you can enjoy those services on any streaming devices like Chromecast. Here is how to setup Chromecast.

But you will find that all the websites shared here show justice to the visitors with best- in- class content and smooth user experience.

You can let us know your suggestion using the comment form down below in case you want any other site to be included in this list.

Don’t forget to spare a second to share this post.

“A picture is worth a thousand words” we all have gone through this quotation, and we all agree on it, right??

Creating text posts make your readers learn things, but infographics make them learn the same thing even faster. Visualization makes learning interesting, and it reduces the learning time.

Research is the first step to creating any post whether it is a text post or an infographic. People misguide themselves thinking Infographic is all about adding pictures into it. But the fact is, infographic requires more research than a text post.

The Infographic indeed adds up pictures, graphs, and other visual data on it but we do need to add key points on it. And without proper research, we can’t do this.

Step 2. Jotting down the main points:

While researching, keep writing down the important points on a copy if you want to go to the old school, or on a notepad, google docs or anywhere you like. Because these are the points that are going to make your infographics informative or shoddy.

Step 3. Selecting a compelling template or designing one:

Step 4. Filling out the data into the template:

Now since you are done with research, jotting down important points and template selection, it’s time to fill out those points to the infographic template. Add important charts, graphs, and highlights where needed and craft your infographic nicely.

When the infographic is ready, it’s time to move to step 5.

Step 5. Publishing the Infographic:

This is the last step of the tutorial! Here you don’t need to do anything but publishing it to your blog, website or wherever you would like to. If you have worked hard and have successfully created a beautiful and professional-looking infographic, why not show it to the world??

These 5 steps are the key to creating a compelling and engaging infographic. I’m sure these steps are enough for you to learn how to create an infographic. But the following tools will help you create professional-looking tools within less than an hour.

These tools are remarkably awesome and free. But mind you, no matter how astonishing these tools are, the authenticity of your infographic completely relies on your own creativity.

A scatter plot is a graph in which the values of two variables are plotted along with two axes. A scatter plot is also known as a scatter diagram that is represented on the graph as a cross or a dot. A scatter plot is a two-dimensional graphical representation of a set of data.

A scatter plot is commonly used for scientific data as it shows the relationship between the numeric values in diverse data series. With the help of a scatter plot one can easily show the uneven or clusters of data as well.

Scatter charts and line charts are quite similar especially when a scatter chart is displayed with the lines. Creating a scatter chart is very easy in MS excel. If you have been reading our articles, you must have read our previously written article on creating graphs in Excel. Where I had thoroughly explained the procedure of creating charts and graphs in excel with step by step procedure.

If you know how the graphs and charts are created in MS Excel, then it will hardly take any of your time to learn the scatter plot excel.

And if you haven’t read the article or don’t know how to create graphs in excel still not to worry, along with the excel scatter plot I will also give you some hints regarding the charts and graphs in excel.

How to Make a Scatter Plot in Excel

To start making a scatter in excel you will need to follow the given steps carefully. Read out the complete guide carefully and learn to make a scatter plot in excel. Only a few steps to follow and you are done. Now let’s not waste much time and head over to the guide!!

After clicking on the insert menu you will see some options there like Column, Line, Pie, Bar, Area, Scatter and other charts. These are the various types of charts and graphs. You can select any of them if your requirement fits the need.

In the above screen, I have titled three columns a day, months, and years and in the rows, I have put some random data. However, I have also mentioned the screenshot to make things easy for you but in case if you are still not able to get any step you can ask in the comment section.

If you want other than the above scatter plots click on the All Chart Types…. Once you click on the All Chart Types, a small window will be opened up. Look at the screenshot.

As you can see on the left side of the screen there are various types of charts appearing including the XY (Scatter). If you want to switch the scatter plot to any other chart select from the list and your chart type will be changed immediately. You can also manage the templates by clicking on the Manage Templates.

The above method I described and the screenshot I took was from Microsoft office 2007. If you are using Microsoft office 2003 then you might face a little difficulty in finding the option. However, both the versions are almost the same but in case if you are not able to find the option check out the below-mentioned steps.

Step 1: As mentioned in the above step, fill out the data you want to create a chart of.

Step 2: After you have entered the data in rows and columns select all of them by dragging over it. Once the data are selected click on the Insert menu from the top menu bar. That’s it. After you select the insert menu, you will see, there is not much difference in the steps ad procedure described above. Now simply follow the above steps and create a scatter plot of the data you want.

So this was how to make a scatter plot in the excel program. I hope you have clearly learned the method. In case, of any doubt, confusion or suggestion you can drop the comment in the comment section. We will try to reach out to you as soon as possible.
