Nicolás López Cano. (2020). Design and Development of a Digital Signage System based on the Content Management System Joomla. Final Career Project (TFG). Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, ETSI Telecomunicación.
The objective of this project has been the design and implementation of a Digital Signage extension, which allows the visualization of the multimedia information of the articles
present in the web pages of the Content Management System called Joomla!
To do this, we studied the market offers and the different types of extensions present in
Joomla, to decide on a Module.
With regard to all this, a Module has been developed that allows, besides visualizing
the images of the articles, to visualize the Author, the Title of the article and the first lines
of the text, in a clear and beautiful way.
To do this, we obtain the information of the articles in the form of a JSON file, which
our module parses to data. Once this data is obtained, it creates a slide show formed by
the images and the rest of the data.
These slides are created dynamically according to the parameters that are introduced in
the administration part of the module, allowing to choose between multiple options. They
are automatically updated every certain time, configurable as well.
From the configuration, we can choose which data, such as the title, author, text; and
in what way we want to be shown on screen and which not.
This project allows to visualize the information of any article in a clear way, with the
data chosen in its wide configuration, so that it is a useful and easy to use tool.
