Seed

Seed is an off grid web server configured as a wireless access point. Anyone within range (approx. 350 ft.) can access Seed on either their mobile or desktop computer. Seed is mounted with a TB of local storage filled with meaningful information for Wikipedia, MIT Open Courseware, 'Free the Children' PDF's and health information.

Seed also hosts local applications as it's a full functioning LEMP server (Linux, Nginx, MySQL, PHP). Seed Chat is the first deployed application. It can be used as both a general public forum as well as an emergency communication tool during natural disasters.

Installation:

Hardware Required:

  • Raspberry Pi
  • Long range wireless antenna
  • 10,000mAh Battery
  • 1TB External hard drive
  • Various other components required for initial configuration (keyboard, screen, etc)

Install Seed on Raspberry Pi

There are two ways to install seed on a raspberry pi:

  1. Download Raspberry Pi SD Image (SD card must be 8GB or greater):
  1. Configure Raspberry pi into an wifi access point.

Install External Storage

Once the seed installation is complete, mount a external hard drive to the raspberry pi for storage: https://www.modmypi.com/blog/how-to-mount-an-external-hard-drive-on-the-raspberry-pi-raspian

Finally download nginx, php, and larval as mentioned below. http://www.ducky-pond.com/posts/2013/Sep/setup-a-web-server-on-rpi/ https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-laravel-with-nginx-on-an-ubuntu-12-04-lts-vps


You must run the following commands in the terminal upon reboot (we'll fix the daemon soon):

sudo service hostapd start
sudo service isc-dhcp-server start
