Final Year Project Documentation - Questions

Post by Zombievirus »

Hi FourDee,

I used DietPi for my Final Year Project (Web Application: Home Surveillance System with Live Stream, Media Recording and Motion Detection).

DietPi Software being used is:

LASP for Surveillance Website including User Management
DietPiCam (heavily modified preview.php, index.php and the css files)


Now for the Documentation i have a few Questions...

- I hope i didn't violate any rules by using DietPi and DietPi Software for a Final Year Project!

- When was DietPi born? The Changelog shows v50 as the first Version. So there never was a v1? I would need atleast the Year. Complete Date would be even better.

- Is there any License (GPL or whatever) DietPi is placed under?

- May i use your real Name for the Documentation Mr. Knight?

For now these are all the questions i came across. I still have a month's time to finish the Documentation. I might ask more Questions in this period.

Regards

Hehe, no issues here, just dont use it for making nuclear missile projects ;).
I'am pleased that you chosen DietPi for your project, that means more to me and its great to hear :)

DietPi was 1st released back in 2014: https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/view ... 38#p588438. At that time it was only really a minimal image.

Its only recently (mid 2015) that work restarted on DietPi. This is when all the new features and DietPi programs you see today were being created and added.
- Is there any License (GPL or whatever) DietPi is placed under?
Yes, DietPi uses a GPLv2 license which basically means "free for all" and "do whatever you want with it". You can read the small print here: https://github.com/Fourdee/DietPi#dietpi-gplv2-license
- May i use your real Name for the Documentation Mr. Knight?
If you can, i would appreciate it.

Yep, no worries, just let me know if you have further questions and I wish you well with your project.
If you find our project or support useful, then we’d really appreciate it if you’d consider contributing to the project however you can.
Donating is the easiest – you can use PayPal or become a DietPi patron.

Great!

Thanks for clarifying!

We have to do 2 Projects here in Vienna, Austria.

The first one is done. Now i only have the Documentation left.

My 2nd Project which has yet to start will be a Java Project (Hotel Management Software)

But even in my 2nd Project DietPi will play a role as i will be installing the H2 Database (best for Java Projects) on my Pi where all the important Data will be stored and accessed via the Internets...

So DietPi will basically make the whole thing "run globally".

Regards
