I was born in and am living in Singapore,
an island city-state with beautiful skylines.
I am currently employed as a Presales Specialist @ SAP
I am also a Management of Technology student @ NUS
I build things with tools from the computing world:
I write on my blog:
When you need more space for your existing Raspbian Stretch image, you need to rewrite it onto a larger microSD card. In order to use the additional storage space, you need to tell Raspbian Stretch to expand its file system.
In this situation, follow this post to expand Raspbian Stretch file system via
When you have an SSH server running on your operating system, you will be able configure it remotely. Since the SSH server is such a convenient tool, Raspbian Stretch comes with an SSH server.
When you are looking for a way to configure your Raspberry Pi without attaching a keyboard to it, enabling SSH server on Raspbian Stretch is a viable way.
Given that, this post discusses some ways for us to enable SSH server on Raspbian Stretch.
Previously, I had shared:
Although Raspbian Stretch Lite is ideal for running Python 3 applications on Raspberry Pis, it is not so handy for developing Python 3 applications.
For example, if you are building a Python application that interfaces with the GPIO ports and CSI camera of your Raspberry Pi 3, it is hard to test it out on Raspbian Stretch Lite.
Since Raspbian Stretch includes a desktop environment, it is more convenient for developing Python 3 applications for Raspberry Pi. With this purpose in mind, this is how to setup Raspbian Stretch on Raspberry Pi 3 for developing Python 3 applications.
When you are developing a Python 3 application with Thonny, you may want to get Thonny to use a virtual environment to run and debug your application.
With this in mind, this post shows you how to associate a Python 3 virtual environment with Thonny.
The python3-venv module allows us to create lightweight “virtual environments” with their own site directories, optionally isolated from system site directories. Given that, we will be able to run multiple Python 3 environments with varying dependencies on the same computer.
This post shows how to create a virtual environment for your Python 3 application with python3-venv in Linux or Unix.
After you had booted up Raspbian Stretch for the first time, you may notice that your Raspberry Pi does not fill up your entire monitor screen:
In such a situation, the overscan function in Raspbian could be what you should disable. Given that, this post shows how to make your Raspberry Pi fill up your entire monitor screen by disabling overscan in Raspbian Stretch.
That's all for now...
