2.2. Installing Fermentrack¶
Fermentrack is intended to be installed as a Docker container as part of a Docker Compose stack. There are three main ways to install Fermentrack:
- One-line fully automated
Regardless of what method you choose, all of these expect that your Raspberry Pi has been properly set up with a working copy of Raspberry Pi OS. If Raspberry Pi OS is not yet installed, please read and complete Preparing a Raspberry Pi for Fermentrack.
The installation will take around 30 minutes, depending on which Raspberry Pi you are using.
2.2.1. Fully Automated¶
The easiest way to install Fermentrack is via a single command executed on your Raspberry Pi. To install via this method, SSH into your Raspberry Pi and execute:
curl -L install.fermentrack.com | bash
Follow the prompts as needed, and once the script completes, you’re done!
You can also watch a video of this process on YouTube at: XXXX
Come back and re-add the video link once the video of the docker install is available.
If you prefer a slightly less automatic installation method, you can download the `fermentrack-tools`_ repo from git and use the install script contained therein. To install using this script, do the following:
- Log into your Raspberry Pi
sudo apt-get install git-core)
- Clone the repo (
git clone https://github.com/thorrak/fermentrack-tools.git)
- Run the install script (
cd fermentrack-tools && sudo ./install.sh)
- Follow the prompts on screen. Relaunch the install script if prompted.
- Once installation completes, open a web browser and connect to Fermentrack to complete the installation process.
If you want to install Fermentrack manually, simply open the
install.sh script from
the `fermentrack-tools`_ repo and follow the commands in the order they are executed by the script.
