In previous blog posts I showed you how to setup a Raspberry Pi with docker-compose support and how to run InfluxDB on your Raspberry Pi. This tutorial will add Grafana to your Pi-stack and give you a complete monitoring setup. The InfluxDB+Grafana stack is heavily used in DevOps scenarios but also extremely useful if you want to visualize any kind of timeseries data at home; power consumption, smart home events, computer uptime, amount of devices in your network, weather in your basement … endless opportunities at your fingertips!Continue reading
This blog post will explain how you can setup influxdb (and the telegraf plugin) on your Raspberry Pi using docker-compose. We will use the config-as-code to create a reproducible setup. This is extremely helpful for hobby projects that you come back to every now-and-then because you can lookup exactly what you are running 😉Continue reading
This blog post will cover how to setup a Raspberry Pi with Docker support. It will also cover some basic steps that will make it easier to work with your RasPi later on. This setup will work completely without monitor/keyboard for your Raspberry but you need a LAN connection to it. I wrote most commands so they are easily pastable and do not require too much interactive work - you should however carefully read what is going on with each of those commands before you fire them off!Continue reading
This post will walk you through setting up a self hosted git based continuous integration environment on a two machine setup - assuming you already have two virtual machines at your disposal. Using Gitea for git hosting and contribution management and Drone for docker-based build jobs, this will guide you through creating docker-compose files as well as configuring the individual services and getting SSL certificates via traefik. Docker and docker-compose knowledge is required for this tutorial. It mostly focuses on the correct configuration of all the services at play here and not explaining their basic functionality.
This tutorial uses Azure resources so some of the aspects might not be 100% applicable if you chose another infrastructure provider.
