A simple digital signage system

Streetsign is a simple to operate digital signage system using HTML5 & CSS for the output, Python (Flask) and sqlite for the back end. The server can run on any posix-like machine, and the client on any HTML5 capable device. It's designed for mulitple users & groups so that different permission levels can be set up. The administration interface is web based as well, and works on desktop or mobile devices. It is easy to extend and write new/specific plugins for. It currently comes with capacity to pull in data from RSS & ATOM feeds.
