  • RPiPlay

    An open-source AirPlay mirroring server for the Raspberry Pi. Supports iOS 9 and up.

    Very cute that there's a one click deployment using some semi-magic third party service, but it feels kinda disingenuous to not link to the repo that's doing the actual heavy lifting.[] The linked repo is just a bunch of config files.
