Creating a Build Radiator with a Raspberry Pi
See The first post in this series to get your Raspberry Pi setup with Docker and Docker Compose as we will be building on that foundation to get our build radiator set up. Why a build radiator? Pretty simple, really; visibility. The more obvious you make your problems, the harder you make them to ignore. The more attention they get, the quicker they get solved. Most of us have pretty good means of filtering out email, Slack, Twitter, and the like.
Static IP and Disable WiFi on a Raspberry Pi
Drive corruption, Containers, and Static IPs. Oh My! Shortly after publishing the first post in this series to get a headless Raspberry Pi setup, the flash drive in my Home Automation Pi (running Home Assistant) became corrupted. No real problem, as I can easily recreate the setup since I use Docker containers and have my configuration in Github. I popped a new flash drive in the RPi and it would not get the same IP Address from my router.
Setting up a Headless Raspberry Pi with SSH, Docker, Docker Compose, git
I have a few Raspberry Pis both at home and at work that assume various roles: a home automation server, a media server, an Amazon Echo, a playground for Kubernetes, and a software build status radiator. I’m running most, if not all all, of the software on these devices in Docker containers. There are many sources out there that enumerate the many benefits of containers, so I won’t do that here.
