Headless and Rasbian-less

I have only briefly played with my RP.

I am just wondering. Can I just make an app that doesn’t require something like Rasbian to be installed?

What my goal is, is to use my RP as a server with some REST services. But I need it to boot as quickly as possible. I noticed that booting Rasbian still takes some time.

There is a headless version of Raspbian. Visit https://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads/raspbian/ and download Raspbian Stretch Lite. It boots quickly, is relatively lean and fully supports the Raspberry Pi.

That sounds promising! I’m also still looking into RP alternatives. The ones that have USB3 ports. Nice journey! :slight_smile:
