App that makes PiTFT into a Zoneminder viewer

Hi Everyone,

Just wanted to share what I did with a RaspberryPi and AdaFruit PiTFT. There is an open source security camera DVR project called Zoneminder (http://www.zoneminder.com) that I use with some security cameras at my house. When I saw the PiTFT I thought it would make a great "always on" viewer for my cameras. So I written a little Python App to do this.

Here is a little video demo of the the app:

For anyone intrested, I open sourced the python code I've written. You can find the code on github. The code should run on any other platform Python and the PyGame library runs on. I need to add some mouse gesture support so it can be used on setups where you only have a touchscreen with no GPIO buttons or a keyboard.
