Automated Install - dietpi.txt configuration.

Need help setting up packages to auto install.

Here’s what I’ve done so far:

This page says:

Find software ID’s you want to install, run dietpi-software list

I can’t seem to get that to output anything running it from the directory on the computer I created the USB with.

I can’t find anywhere else to get software ID to put in the config before I boot up the Pi, which I find rather strange.

Maybe I’ve been staring at the screen too long, but I’m stumped.


The software ID’s are listed with command:

dietpi-software list

You’ll need to run this on a device with DietPi already installed.

Example, to find nextcloud:

dietpi-software list | grep nextcloud

id 114 | =0 | nextcloud: a safe home for all your data | +webserver +mysql |

114 is the install index.

Another option is to browse the source code, to find indexs:

So… you can’t get a list of software to automate… unless you manually install the software…?

Or am I misunderstanding the usage of “automation?”

Another option is to browse the source code, to find indexs:
DietPi/dietpi/dietpi-software at master · Fourdee/DietPi · GitHub

We have plans to add ID’s on our website in the future.

Right on.

It just boggled me that I had to install to get IDs for an automated install :stuck_out_tongue:

Interesting project you’ve got going on.

I may give it a run and stick around.

I want a light, lean, minimal headless install that can be automated.

Thanks for the information.

nextcloud needs to have Apache2 and mysql to run properly…

At least that is how I have mine set up…others have reported that lighttpd and sqlite doesn’t seem to work
