cyber-dojo Raspberry Pies in action



Liam Friel, who helps to run a CoderDojoBray (in Ireland) asked me for some Raspberry Pies which I was more than happy to give him, paid for from the donations lots of you generous people have made from cyber-dojo.

Liam sent me this wonderful photo of a CoderDojoBray session and writes:

Your Pies have been getting a lot of use... We've got 8 Pies in total. Got a reasonably steady turnout at the dojo, 75-85 kids turning up each week.

Awesome. If, like Liam, you would like some Raspberry Pies to help kids learn about coding, please email. Thanks

install Docker-Toolbox for Windows

From here.



open a Docker-Quickstart-Terminal




get your cyber-dojo server's IP address

In the Docker-Quickstart-Terminal, type:
$ docker-machine ip default
It will print something like 192.168.99.100



shell into your cyber-dojo server

In the Docker-Quickstart-Terminal, type:
$ docker-machine ssh default

In your cyber-dojo server, type:
$ curl -O https://raw.githubusercontent.com/cyber-dojo/commander/master/cyber-dojo $ chmod +x cyber-dojo

running your own cyber-dojo server on Linux

install docker

If docker is not already installed, install it. There are two ways to do this:
  • Either, follow the instructions on the docker website.
  • Or curl/wget the quick-and-easy install script at https://get.docker.com
    $ curl -sSL https://get.docker.com/ | sh $ wget -qO- https://get.docker.com/ | sh



add your user to the docker group

Eg, something like
$ sudo usermod -aG docker YOUR_USERNAME



log out and log in again

You need to do this for the previous usermod to take effect.


install the cyber-dojo shell script

In a terminal, type:
$ curl -O https://raw.githubusercontent.com/cyber-dojo/commander/master/cyber-dojo $ chmod +x cyber-dojo

Now use this cyber-dojo script to run your own cyber-dojo server.
