A utility for working with disk images, which are designed to be flashed onto a Raspberry Pi.
piimg is currently untested beyond my own needs, and so I suggest great caution when using it.
There are 3 useful subcommands;
list can be run on an image file by running
piimg list <img-file>
It performs a functionality similar to
fdisk -l and will list the partitions on the disk.
mount is much more cool. It will mount an image files root partition at a given mount point, then mount in the boot partition too. Furthermore, it also bind mounts
/sys, whilst creating a
/proc. (How cool is that!?!) It can be run by
piimg mount <img-file> <mount-point>
To unmount, run
piimg umount <mount-point>
piimg should not be run as
root and will escalate its privileges as
The aim is to create a library and command-line utility for manipulating, mounting and generally working with Raspberry Pi images.
This project started as a question on Raspberry Pi.SE.
