Networking the Thermal Printer

Thermal Printer

I have improved my little thermal printer thing a little by connecting it to one of the many spare Pi0w that I had, and wrote a little web interface that basically allows anyone on the internal network to print out todo lists.

Going forward I need to write some authentication for this, and probably mitigate the obvious remote code execution that is currently in it....

Pretty cool though what can be written in a couple of hours. I opted to use nodejs and express to make the mini api, no source as it's shocking (i.e the RCE) and less than 10 lines so anyone could write it...
