As an openHABian end user, please check out the official openHAB documentation:
openHABian - Hassle-free openHAB Setup
Setting up a fully working Linux system with all needed packages and openHAB recommendations is a boring task taking quite some time and Linux newcomers shouldn't worry about these technical details.
A home automation enthusiast doesn't have to be a Linux enthusiast!
openHABian aims to provide a self-configuring Linux system setup specific to the needs of every openHAB user. The project provides two things:
- A set of scripts to set up openHAB on any Debian/Ubuntu based system
- Complete SD-card images pre-configured with openHAB and many other openHAB- and Hardware-specific preparations, for the Raspberry Pi and the Pine A64.
Installation and Setup
Enjoy openHABian and the wondrous world of openHAB!!
For image building, please see the
build.sh scripts to get an idea of the process.
Simply put: $ sudo bash build.sh platform $ sudo bash build.sh platform dev-git # Injecting current local branch as remote endpoint (eg. fork) $ sudo bash build.sh platform dev-url branch url # Injecting custom branch an repository where platform can be: rpi, pine64
