Simple PiTFT Touch Menu System

Just completed a simple touch menu for Raspberry Pi projects using the 3.5” Adafruit PiTFT 480x320 touch screen.

Runs as a python script in the framebuffer without needing a desktop environment.

I have made a model b+ Touch Pi 3D printed case for my screen and raspberry pi, and with a battery and PowerBoost 500c charger it makes a great base for raspberry pi projects.

I wanted a way to do common tasks like going to the desktop, rebooting and shutting down without needing to use a keyboard. I also wanted the screen to display the current IP address to make it easier to ssh into the device.
