Here's a little app to show the battery status of the CrowPi L in the system tray of the native Raspberry Pi OS:
From a terminal, install python3-pyqt5
sudo apt install python3-pyqt5

git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:ppyne/crowPi-L_BatteryStatus.git cd crowPi-L_BatteryStatus/ chmod +x ./batteryStatus.py ./batteryStatus.py
There're several problems you need to notice when install this APP.
1.'git clone email@example.com:ppyne/crowPi-L_BatteryStatus.git' returns fatal error:

git clone https://github.com/ppyne/crowPi-L_BatteryStatus.git
Then the APP will be installed successfully.

Then the APP will work properly.
