Just trying out resin.io which is a nice new service that enables you to deploy apps to Raspberry Pi devices in a Heroku-like workflow:
git push resin master
In this post I’ll explain how I deployed a simple app that recites “N green bottles” written in Node.js to my Raspberry Pi via resin.io – without having to ssh to the Pi even once.
First I followed the video with official instructions, which is quite easy to understand and leads you through the whole process of getting a sample app up and running. I had a problem at first deploying the sample text2speech app, due to an error:
qemu: uncaught target signal 11 (Segmentation fault) - core dumped
But on the second
git push attempt it worked (although it takes some time to build all the dependencies). All in all, when I remember the messy steps I had to go through to set up my first RPy image manually, this is super elegant – you don’t even have to use weird
dd commands to copy the image to the SD card, it’s enough to just extract the zip file.
