This repository aim to provide container for building Armbian.


  • x86_64 Debian sid as host and container system
  • there should be minimal number of packets installed by Armbian
  • setup should simplify contribution (ie. using forked repo)


git clone
cd armbian-docker
docker build -t 3mdeb/armbian .
cd ..
docker run -v ${PWD}/lib:/root/lib -t -i 3mdeb/armbian

Shorter way:

git clone
cd armbian-docker ./

NOTE: you need access to .., also if REPO not provided will be used
