    Easily the most educational 18 minutes I have spent in a long while. I have had other people try and explain docker to me without measurable success, but you succeeded. This is exactly what I have been wanting to do ever since I (laboriously) set up an RPi with mosquitto & NR. I will get myself a fancy new RPi and re-do the whole thing. Thanks to you and Graham!

      @Andreas Spiess Hi Andrea, planning to follow your tutorial to build my docker Pi Server.
      Couple of questions that I did not see at instructions (at least not directly mentioned).
      Do you use Raspian Buster Lite or any of the desktop versions?
      Wondering if it is better to use a 32Gb or 64Gb card?

    I feel the summary is very good, because you explain so much and the summary gives us a guide what we learned. Many people hangup videos after a few minutes, however often they come back to re-watch the video once they start such projects.
    Of course you have many experienced followers where they may don’t need a summary, however the new once are most important for the channel and the summary helps big way.

      @Andreas Spiess I've never seen your videos before, I just got a recommendation. I'm also someone similar to Bruno.
      It's good you were able to streamline the process for less technical people with Docker-compose and based on other people's work (and mention them by name ! very good).
      This shows you've figured out yourself or based on other peoples comment/suggestions, etc. What a good structure is in general (maintainable, etc.) and how to explain it. You are far above average.
      Only thing missing from the title was IoT. :-)

      Hi Andreas, thank you for another great informative video. Regarding summaries, i personally like them on very in depth videos or complex subjects where time has been limited. Videos like this where you refer to other scripts, tutorials etc and are quite simple or high level anyway - probably less needed.
      But either way, i will still seek out your tutorials when you have one on a topic im working on at the time - your time and effort is greatly appreciated by me here in Scotland! Thanks.

    I would like you to make a 2nd part of this video, where maybe you can show how can we have 2 (or more) raspberry pi , doing the docker swarm setup so the load is been shared. More like a cluster but all of the guys running the docker containers. I had it but faced a lot of difficulties to setup properly. As well, it acts as a good redundancy if our whole house is dependent on the Raspberry!

I'm blown away by how much is in this presentation which fits my needs and desires so well.

    Thanks for the awesome video. I was able to use what you showed me here, as well as a few of your other videos, to build the RPI Docker Server that boots from an 500GB M.2 MVME. The first thing I chose to pull data from was the RPI itself. I used Python scripts to generate about 8 values from the RPI and publish them via MQTT to the Node Red. I use the same node red to monitor about 30 values of SNMP data from my NAS server and pull down real time weather data to Node Red via an API. I'm quite happy with what you've enabled me to do with this (you should see the Node Red Dashboard) and I'm much closer to realizing the home automation system of my dreams. Till now, I've been approaching home automation in pieces without a central platform for display and database. Now I have a central system that allows me to add sensors and controls in a much more modular fashion. Thanks for the excellent information and inspiration.

    Add Summaries as optional video files, They can then be played Before or After the Primary Video. Most will find this to be the best option. If you want or need a detailed review it is available. If you don't then you can skip it. Putting them into a watch before or after list. This is assuming you do more than a few videos on a related subject. This format is often used in other teaching subjects or seminars. Also is far easier to post updates without any major editing.

This is by far the most useful video I have seen from you. The Raspberry 4 will be ordered soon. The SCRIPT from Peter will now be history for me. Also, I sense a backup supply system will not be necessary anymore because of the much easier backup system. This video will keep me busy for some time, which is good!

    A great addition to the package would be Traefik as a reverse proxy. Traefik works well with Docker and LetsEncrypt. Traefik offers a http-reverse-proxy and from version 2 on also a tcp-proxy. It is then possible encryption using MQTT over the internet access to its own mosquito broker.
    Since LetsEncrypt can not use wildcard certificates when using the http challenge, the individual services (Mosquitto, NodeRed, OpenHab, ...) should be integrated via different paths.
    For home use, basic authentication (middleware in traefik) is sufficient in my opinion.
    In addition to the VPN access, we could create a simple possibility using the services encrypted and authenticated via the internet.

I ran into trouble here, getting the backups to Dropbox to work from crontab: kzclip.org/video/a6mjt8tWUws/бейне.html With help from Paraphraser on discord, the crontab line that worked for me is to do it without sudo. Like this: 0 23 * * * ~/IOTstack/scripts/docker_backup.sh >>./Logs/iotstack_backup.log 2>&1
    keeping a log file instead of going to dev/null is handy to debug if any trouble.

    Well, not all providers allow incoming connections like this. You can also use one intermediate node as vpn hub (digitalocean droplet for instance). Also, you can create reverse ssh tunnel from rpi to some vps server, then ssh from your pc to vps, after that you can ssh to local port on vps, which will be forwarded to your rpi. Kinda one ssh tunnel inside another. Also there is cool usbip tool, it allows forwarding any usb device to remote host. Mouse, hub, disk drive, modem, whatever. Sometimes it can be very helpful

    Hey Andreas, thanks for this. I've been using Home Assistant for exactly this (well, less DropBox and PiVPN), but this seems like a nice light-weight solution.
    I can however recommend HomeAssistant. It provides a very nice web interface. Most add-ons can be integrated into the admin menu. It now supports USB connected SSDs (I needed to use a 3A power supply to make this reliable) and provides notification of system and addon update availability. The only drawbacks are that updates happen more often than I'd like (auto-update is an option, but I'm wary of trusting it) and that the host OS is not raspian (they have developed their own HASSOS), so every addition needs to be a Docker app (not the end of the world, and not difficult to develop) BTW: InfluxDB does have a web-interface and the standard HA addon supports it.

    Nice work Andreas.
    I just finished a pi4 / 4GB with all the bells and wistles like mosquitto, grafana, influx etc like you showed earlier. It works, but still I had to update the packages after Peter's script. That cost me a lot of time and was sometimes frustrating. I use several esp32's with a bme680 to put enviromental data into the influx database (using your tutorials to figure out howto do this).
    I hope that the docker route shown is hassle free and installs the latest versions. I'll try this with an older pi3 and hopefully I will find out what works best.
    Dear Doctor, thanks again for showing results from your experiments. Cheers, Dr. Nick.

    +1 for the summaries - standard presentation flow is say what's coming, say the what, say a summary of what (better said on the many courses I have been on) Plus I like your Bye sign off. I will be looking closely into this as I have just got into docker on OMV. So far Plex and Resilio Sync. It works very well with no intervention. I want play with other stuff like NodeRed so this looks a good way to go on a spare Pi. I am still trying to get a vpn working reliably on the OMV system so perhaps that can go to the Pi as well with connection back to the OMV system. Ah good times. If it ain't broke don't fix it, but if you're bored break it and have fun making it work again

    Great solution for backing up the data to Dropbox.
    If interested, take a look at Keybase. Keybase File System (KBFS) is easy to access-once Keybase is installed-via command line and could provide some reporting capabilities by writing an update/text-a-user BASH script. Forgot to mention: encrypted file storage 🤓

    Wonderful addition to the IOT toolbox!
    I found this today while trying to use ‘the script’ to install all this on my new Pi4 with ARM64 Ubuntu server 19.10 Pi image.
    This docker process from Graham has seemed to work as expected!!
    On this new Pi4 I now have:
    Ubuntu 19.10 arm64 running including the GUI
    Graham’s entire docker package
    All seems to be working properly but I have not tested everything yet.
    The only odd thing was having to use sudo in a few places that I did not expect to.

    Hi Andreas,
    I am very impressed by your videos and this one inspired me to set up IOTstack on a RP4.
    Unfortunately I have a problem with adminer. The installation was fine but I cannot access the login page of adminer via port 9080. There is no DB installed on the RP4 because I want to access my existing Maria-DB on a Synology NAS.
    The yml part of adminer looks like this:
    container_name: adminer
    image: adminer
    restart: unless-stopped
    - "9080:8080"
    - iotstack_nw
    The logfile of adminer from today (11.05.2021):
    [Sat Apr 25 09:25:44 2071] PHP 7.4.19 Development Server ([::]:8080) started
    [Sat Apr 25 09:24:40 2071] [::ffff:]:54980 Accepted
    What seems also strange is the timestamp in the log!

    Hello Andreas,
    at first, thank you for this very good and helpful video. Having no contact with all of this before (hard- and software-wise) I was able to set it up and get it running at the first try! Thumbs up!
    But here's the big "but": after some time running the docker daemon is not reachable anymore and won't (re)start. Rebooting the Pi didn't help and I don't want to install Docker completely again because of the data (no cloud backup at the moment). In addition the chips of the Pi are very hot, probably too hot as the heat sinks nearly burn my fingers -.- The Pi is still reachable via ssh, if you or anyone else of this cool and kind viewers has an idea I am very thankful for it.

    Two remarks:
    1. you may move all your logging to journald, journal files can be held in RAM.
    2. you may put small swap on zram -- still have some space, if something leaks memory, but it takes less memory, since zram is compressed.

I'm currently running PiHole on a Pi Zero W and it works fine but I worry about card corruption because here in South Africa we get quite frequent power load shedding, so auto backup sounds good.
