This is a simple guide to creating a Docker development environment with your Raspberry Pi 4.
This has been tested on a Raspberry Pi 4 Model B Rev 1.1 using Raspbian Buster.
You can check your Raspberry Pi model by running the following command in the Raspberry Pi terminal:
You can also check your Raspbian OS version by running the following command in the Raspberry Pi terminal:
- Install Docker
curl -sSl https://get.docker.com | sh
- Install dependencies
sudo apt-get install -y python python-pip sudo apt-get install libffi-dev libssl-dev
- Add permissions for Pi User to run Docker Commands
sudo usermod -aG docker $USER
- Install Docker Compose
sudo pip install docker-compose
- Test Docker installation
docker run hello-world
Note: you might need to restart your Raspberry Pi to use docker without sudo persissions.
If the installation was completed successfully, you will get the "Hello from Docker!" message. You can then check out Docker Hub for arm based images to run on your Raspberry Pi.
