The Raspberry Pi Zero is five years old, has limited RAM, a slow CPU, and poor I/O, but can it still handle Cloud Native workloads like containers? I’ll show you my experiment where I got “nerd sniped” and spent far too much time trying to get faasd (a light-weight OpenFaaS version) working on the device.
A deep-dive on the design decisions behind the new Raspberry Pi inside a keyboard. Have you been wondering why the mouse is on the left? Wonder no more…
You likely already saw this, but I don’t even care because I have to link to it because it is so freakin’ cool!
We’ve never been shy about borrowing a good idea. Which brings us to Raspberry Pi 400: it’s a faster, cooler 4GB Raspberry Pi 4, integrated into a compact keyboard. Priced at just $70 for the computer on its own, or $100 for a ready-to-go kit, if you’re looking for an affordable PC for day-to-day use this is the Raspberry Pi for you.
Instead of blocking ads & trackers at the device level, Pi-hole is a DNS sinkhole that gets the job done at the network level. One benefit of this (in addition to ease of use) is that it can block content in non-browser locations like mobile apps and the like.
Gives you access to a virtualised ARM based Raspberry Pi machine running the Raspian operating system. This is not just a Raspian Docker image, it’s a full ARM based Raspberry Pi virtual machine environment.
How it does its thing:
A full ARM environment is created by using Docker to bootstrap a QEMU virtual machine. The Docker QEMU process virtualises a machine with a single core ARM11 CPU and 256MB RAM, just like the Raspberry Pi. The official Raspbian image is mounted and booted along with a modified QEMU compatible kernel.
Run it on a Raspberry Pi or any other local server. Try the online demo to see what all it’s capable of.
CutiePi is a good name for this device. It sure is cute!
We believe in open source, and we believe people should have control over the technology they use. Everything you see here is open source – schematics, PCB, drivers, firmware, UI, everything.
It’s still early (no pricing, for example), but they’re shooting for a release before 2019 is out.
It astounds me how much bang you can get for 35 bucks today.
Turns out, pretty dang far. This web app was my attempt at mimicking Apple’s iOS music app, and I think I’ve come pretty close!
I have to admit, he did a pretty good job. The frontend is built on React and Redux. The backend? A Laravel-based API running on a Raspberry Pi!
Here’s the live demo, but be nice because Raspberry Pi.
This repository contains a step-by-step guide that teaches how to create a simple operating system (OS) kernel from scratch. I call this OS Raspberry Pi OS or just RPi OS. The RPi OS source code is largely based on Linux kernel, but the OS has very limited functionality and supports only Raspberry PI 3.
6 lessons available with 5 more on the roadmap.
Very simple, inexpensive for small businesses. For Linux, MacOS, and Windows!
If you’ve been looking for a good excuse to hack on a Raspberry PI… well, now you just might have it.
Paul Miller with a good breakdown of what’s new (and what’s not) in the latest Raspberry Pi:
The new board has a slightly faster 1.4 GHz quad-core processor, Bluetooth 4.2 (an upgrade from 4.1), and dual-band Wi-Fi.
Sounds like an incremental upgrade, but progress nonetheless. It never ceases to amaze me how much value they cram in to these things for just $35. And so cute!
