Trivial install of Etherpad onto a Raspberry Pi to aid localised documentation

Installation

Pi

  1. Install Ansible on your computer
  2. Install the latest Raspbian lite image onto a micro-SD card
  3. Boot the Raspberry Pi with the micro-SD card, while plugged into a network via Ethernet
  4. Find out the IP address of the Raspberry Pi
  5. Copy your SSH credentials onto the Pi ssh-copy-id pi@<ip-address-of-the-pi>
  6. Edit the hosts file so ansible knows which computer to configure. Change the IP address in it to match the one you just found out.
  7. Check you can run commands on the Pi using Ansible ansible eiab -i hosts -a "hostname" -u pi
  8. Update the Pi ansible-playbook eiab.yml -i hosts

Usage

Once the install is complete, you'll have a local Etherpad server available at http://etherpad.local:9001
