Background: I have a Mark 1 sitting in a box. I got it last year in the hopes of finding some way to run music locally, without Amazon or Google products. (I ended up bowing to Amazon Music and using Musicolet on an unused phone when the internet is out.)
So right now I’m looking at possibly setting up a web server that will run node.js as part of OmerTu’s GoogleHomeKodi. (I had been using Glitch as the web host piece but they dropped it.) Could I use the Mark 1 to do that? I don’t really want to run a full size pc and it’s just sitting there…
If I can’t, then is there anything else interesting to do with it? I have Echo Dots in every room and a Google Mini that is part of the Kodi voice control, so I don’t really need the voice assistant part of it. I understand that a Pi3 is the heart of it, so it seems like there might be?
Editing to add: After reading more of the documentation, maybe my question is more simple. Does a Raspberry Pi include node.js and npm, so that I could just add the code from the project cited above? I’ve been poking around github and the Mycroft docs and it doesn’t really say what a baseline Pi includes.
