I'm just starting to learn coding with the specific purpose of maintaining the Raspberry Pi-controlled Arduino boards that control our puzzles. I'm learning basics with Scratch 3, and I'm learning how to create a custom block and control its function, shape, and category. I've mostly worked in the service industry and maintenance/Demo since I left the Army Infantry, so I'm definitely kinda dumb; But I've also been selected for some of the more technical jobs involved in those fields, so I'm not stupid... Thank you for your input on the pros/cons.

Looking for a lean wiki that can run on Raspberry Pi 4 model B 4gb.

For now i'm not looking for solutions that require any form of containerization like docker or podman. Should be able to run on a bare metal 64-bit arm version of Debian.

It'd be great if you could provide some context as to why you chose what you chose.

Thanks in anticipation.

Kiosk App on Raspberry Pi

  • I have a personal project that I'm developing into a Kiosk app and am considering deploying it on a RaspberryPi as a semi-portable controller user interface.
  • I'm new to RaspberryPi, I know my way around Debian though, and so I've researched a few Electron tutorials on using Electron on a RaspberryPI and they seem to be what I'm looking for.
  • However, I'd love to hear your comments and suggestions in working with Electron on the RaspberryPi, in particular in Kiosk with a touchscreen for user input.
  • What's the performance like, are there memory constraints, any reliability issues I should be aware of?
  • Once the project is at a working stage I plan to open source it on my GitHub for further input and development.
  • I'm a long term JavaScript developer (since the late 90's for real I was there when JS was first released, unashamed Vanilla.JS fanboi)
  • I write for the browser and server backend environments using Web technologies and Node.js.
