Here is an automated pub ale menu I created with the Ruby language, using the Sinatra framework, and some javascript. As ales are tapped and available for serving they appear on the blackboard as shown, complete with type, ABV, and price. Ales are entered into the system as they are tapped. This can trigger an update of a website containing a page showing the blackboard.



Update: Unfortunately the BatmanJS library is no longer maintained

The batman javascript library was used to create the blackboard update mechanism. The blackboard itself is designed to be displayed on a suitable large flat-screen TV, and can be used for other marketing and sport display too.
