In the first two parts of this series, we discussed the hardware and software fundamentals for building network-attached storage (NAS) on a Raspberry Pi. We also put a proper backup strategy in place to secure the data on the NAS. In this third part, we will talk about a convenient way to store, access, and share your data with Nextcloud.
2018/09/18: The board can be used as a general purpose I/O and DAQ add-on but is specifically designed as a control board for aquaponics and hydroponics gardening.
There are a number of different models and versions of the Raspberry Pi computer. But which one is best for your project?
Newark Element14's new ValentFX Logi-Pi and Logi-Bone FPGA add-on boards for the Raspberry Pi and BeagleBone Black feature Arduino and PMOD hooks.
A hackable "Zymbit Orange" IoT box offers internal RPi SBC, Arduino shield, Atmel Wingboard, wireless, and touch display options, plus cloud-based access.
Ubos, which translates to "You are the boss", is a platform to help intermediately skilled users set up a home server and deploy web apps on it in a most automated way. Ubos puts you in the driver seat without knowing the details of the motor. On the other hand, it does not keep you Continue reading...
Anderson Silva shows us how to use a Raspberry Pi and LightshowPi to create a musical light show.
Every issue of Linux User & Developer is packed with features and tutorials created by professionals to help you do more with your Linux system and expand your free and open source software and programming knowledge.
One of the most popular and useful projects with Raspberry Pi (RPi) board is turning RPi into a media center box. All you need to do is to download a media center image for RPi, and write it to your SD card. There are plenty of media center distributions for Raspberry Pi, such as OpenELEC, Continue reading...
Download Bedtime for free. Disconnect your children from the Internet after bedtime. Bedtime controls the bedtime of your children by automatically disconnecting their devices from your Internet connection. It does this by replacing your ISP router as the source of IP addresses, which allows it to learn all the devices on your network and control their access.
SD cards are said to have a finite life. If you are planning on running a Raspberry Pi 24x7x365, there are some steps that you can take with GNU/Linux to extend the life of the card: here are some ideas.
Raspberry Pis, Arduinos, microscopes and soldering lessons to help children teach themselves the STEM skills that are vital for economic development.
Recently I've discovered this project that has great ambitions: arkOS is an open-source platform for securely self-hosting your online life. Everything started from the founder Jacob Cook and the CitizenWeb Project he founded. It's designed to run on a Raspberry Pi - a super-low-cost single board computer - and
UK IT needs more than rose-tinted BBC Micro memories, thank you
When I had traded in my Microsoft box for a Linux box, I wanted it to look and behave like the large $100K Unix boxes I had had the pleasure...
Before summer 2012, neither 16-year-old Alyssa Dayan or 17-year-old Tom Hartley, had used a Raspberry Pi. But by March 2013, they had invented a weather and pollution monitoring system called the AirPi
I originally published the following note on nettime and Facebook. I have included it in this blog because of its relevance to its topic, and added a couple of important updates:
Here at the Centre for Development Informatics we've spent years avoiding a techno-centric approach to ICT4D. But . . . we are rather excited about Raspberry Pi. If you don't already know it, Raspberry Pi is not a low-cost computer. It's an ultra-low-cost computer (see photo below). And it was the subject of a recent
