I just want to request Dietpi developers please add paperless-ngx. this type of program is very good for normal household document management. there are official baremetal installation instructions are here.
but for newbie user like me it is very difficult. I am not able to go beyond dietpi given software. If possible please add this software also in dietpi list. Please inform me if any software already available in dietpi list which capable to do these task. then alternatively i will use that software.
I will really appreciate if some expert write step by step commands based on dietpi specific to manual install this software on already running dietpi server. thanks
Thanks. In past i many time divert towards docker. but within a week i came back to dietpi installation. as per my past experience dietpi is rock solid platform. in raspberry pi or low cpu devices docker create system unstable and more resource consumption. upto now i am very happy with dietpi operating system. i remember i bought raspberry pi in year 2016 & still it is working solid on dietpi. dietpi it self very stable as well as its maintainer very helpful in forum. thanks to dietpi team for their hard work.
Yeah, on low memory systems, Docker could be a pain as it’s allocating around 100MB ram for the Docker engine, not even having a single container started. However, on SBC like RPI4 2GB+ it should not matter that much.
I also tried to install it with docker but after trying it for tons of hours I gave up.
Docker is a pure shit show. Such a piece of crap software.
In the end I had a running instance on docker but I could not find out how to properly map the data outside the container.
Get a docker image called portainer, gives you a graphical listing of the entire docker, allows you to change it and whatnot…once you learn docker (there is a learning curve) it will make it so much easier to install programs inside of any linux
I believe the Dietpi developers already went thru the files, but if not portainer will allow you to install it pretty easy
inside the docker-compose.yml is where the “Volumes” would be set
in portainer, there is a convenient block that you can create, modify those volumes and variables and then restart the entire image
more or less this is the only command to get portainer up and running
The bare metal variant is indeed a typical beneficial DietPi software distribution, with lots of dependencies, some optional, many configuration options where a working/best practice default and possibly the one or the other dialog-based choice is a nice thing. I hope it ia not developed too fast so that a dietpi-software implementation would regularly break/require adjustment .
