In ~september we switched to nooitaf's nurdbar version.

attempt at documentation ;

20:21:57 <@buZz> nooitaf: hoe kan profzon nu club mate cola aan de bar verkopen?
20:23:23 <@nooitaf> buZz: moment.. ik check ff goed

20:26:41 <@nooitaf> sell MATEBARCODE AMOUNT(INT) PRICE(FLOAT) 
20:27:05 <@nooitaf> dus example
20:27:14 <@nooitaf> sell 0000000000 20 0.0

attempt #2 ;

old shit

Using the BPM_Studio_Jukebox, this project has been resurrected into a hybrid IRC client/payment management terminal.


IRC client identifies self as 'popcorn' and can be used by guests etc. to interact with the IRC channel.

  • It also should allow anyone to be able to turn on/off the lights from inside the space itself.

The payment manager is switchable to on pressing TAB.

The database is held on postgresql.nurdspace.lan.

Identification is done by unique barcode - pre-defined in the DB. (LDAP-integration? We could store people's ID's in a field there)

Commands are entered by specific barcodes e.g. buy, sell, log out, etc.

  • Multiples of items can be entered in text

Items are sold into the system after item identification (name, size, origin country, price if selling) and the seller is credited the value.

Items can then be bought out of the system by scanning your ID, then the item (and entering any multiples if desired)

New accounts/barcodes can be added by asking Petraea

Old News

We'd like to automate the bar, inspired by Bitlair. buZz has a barcode scanner, so we can set up a system where you identify yourself and identify your drink, and then the required amount of funds is automatically subtracted from your account.


  • by barcode (if you're a regular);
  • by typing your name in he terminal;
  • NFC-device?

The drinks will be identified by a barcode scanner.

Update 16-4

Just got the barcode scanner working on my MacBook w/ Lion. You want:

New system requirements

  • Terminal based with keyboard and/or barcode scanner
  • Database based
  • Accept cash
  • Accept card
  • Balance
  • Easy in use
  • Gateway integration to add credit via iDeal/bank transfer or card

nice to have

  • Intergration in to
  • Guest user so that visitors can also enjoy consumptions

Current Options

On order

  • Some Arduino clone with 2.4" screen
  • CH-926 Coin acceptor
  • Dual frequency scanner for the tags we use for door entry
  • serial programmer for things like a SonOFF

Already there

  • Barcode scanner
  • Machine running the CLI/Enduser interface (with space shutdown script, still needs WOL or wake on power)
  • Bill acceptor with wrong firmware (doesn´t nom Euro yet)

To be constructed

  • A enclosure for the buckazoids that locks
  • The back end
