What Is Raspberry Pi
The Raspberry Pi Foundation is a UK-based charity that works to put the power of digital making into the hands of people all over the world, so they are capable of understanding and shaping our increasingly digital world, able to solve the problems that matter to them, and equipped for the jobs of the future.
We provide low-cost, high-performance computers that people use to learn, solve problems and have fun. We provide outreach and education to help more people access computing and digital making. We develop free resources to help people learn about computing and how to make things with computers, and train educators who can guide other people to learn.
In other words, it’s a credit card sized, low power computer and is the perfect platform to run Home Assistant.
By the way, the Pis are also the perfect platform for Snakeoil OS. Perhaps not as the primary rig, but it’d do nicely as secondary listening zones at your shed or office.
No ETA as yet but it’s in the works.

ARMv7 edition of Snakeoil is not ready yet. Hopefully I can find some time to implement that in the coming months.

Great article, I just add one thing…you should tell to look for the permissions of the folders where the private keys are. I’ve got some issues when i tried to connect to HTTPs and was resolve by changing the permissions of home assistant user for that folders.
Maybe because of the version of hass.io - 0.82.1

Is the IMG file of Snakeoil ready for Raspberry Pi 3B installation? Is it as easy as volumio or Runeaudio for installation of the Snakeoil just by flashing it onto a micro SD card and inserting it to the Raspberry Pi so simple? Where is the location of all the OS installation files stored on the web? Can I have the relevant link here to search them out and have a trial?

Yes, the IMG file works with all versions of Raspberry Pis - mainly because it’s 32 bits.
All the Intel ISOs and IMGs are in one location, follow the “Version” link in this article to get the latest image to use.
