As promised, I have recently completed the first iteration (read “It probably has some bugs in it!”) of a complete n8n installation script for the Raspberry Pi on a clean installation of Raspbian Buster (February 2020 build).
With only a few small steps and a system reboot, you can have your own custom n8n RPi up and running!
I have written up some documentation (it is still a work in progress) on how to perform the install or, if you are a bit of a keener, you can simple boot your RPi from a fresh Raspbian installation, SSH into the system and enter:
wget --no-cache -O - https://raw.githubusercontent.com/TephlonDude/n8n-pi/master/scripts/build-n8n-pi-1.sh | bash
And follow the onscreen instructions. Here is a taste of the installation script:
This is just the first roll-out of the script and I have a lot of other plans in the works for this as well including:
- Prebuilt RPi images
- n8n RPi management tools
- Custom RPi GPIO n8n nodes
As usual, please let me know how this is working for you and if you have any suggestions.
