Does Zola work on Raspberry Pi


I was trying to find any mention of Raspberry Pi in the forum but didn’t find any. I wanted to know if I can host Zola on my Raspberry Pi. Is there any potential downside to installing it via Snap?

I have no idea if it works. Installing from snap should work though.

I tried to compile Zola on my Pi4 (4gb) on DietPi, unsuccessfully, but I may suggest that you can install Docker on Pi and create image with Zola

Ah yes that’s a known issue. The next version should work since this particular lib will not be present anymore. You can try the next branch

skillful! So, Zola has built and works successfully on Raspberry Pi :slight_smile:



That’s awesome! I am gonna give it a go.
