Install The Things Stack on a rpi 4

Hi Folks.

Is there a (simple) way (or is there a possibility at all?) to install the TTS LNS on a Raspberry Pi 4 with 8GB RAM to set up a private LoraWAN network?
And if so, is there an understandable guide somewhere?

Thanks in advance.



No, not even a not-understandable one. But you could pick your way through the install docs to see what the various config files need to be and ‘see what happens’.

Do read the bit about localhost & running on internal networks where you have to change https to http otherwise you’ll not be able to log in to the web console.

There are ARM releases being generated but as TTS will be an SD Card killer, I’d strongly recommend you get an SSD to run your main file system on.

Personally, having managed to get a TTS instance running, I’d use a small VM on the internet and use the pre=packaged docker, like wot I did. You don’t need 8Gb if you only have a few dozen nodes and if you have a serious setup with lots of nodes, then Pi is probably not the best idea.
