The suggested usage is
npx, because that way you'll always be running the latest version of
pitemp without installing it.
npx is installed by default with
npm. You can get
npm by installing NodeJS.
npx pitemp // pitemp is reporting every X seconds. // Main: 62.322° C - Max: 62.322° C
You can install
pitemp globally with your favorite package manager.
npm install -g pitemp yarn global add pitemp
Then simply run
pitemp with the command.
pitemp // pitemp is reporting every X seconds. // Main: 61.323° C - Max: 62.826° C
You can read the full documentation and view the flags available on the
pitemp NPM page.
pitemp is an open source tool built in Node.js. Drop it a star on Github!
Now you know how to ensure your Pi does not become deep fried. Run a stress test and see how high you can push it… with a decent fan, you should never hit 85° C or more—even if you're overclocked.
Once you're done with that, shoot me a follow on Twitter. Thanks for the read!
