Quick Setup CasaOS:
Now we have enough information about the Casa, let's try to install it. Before installing the casa, first boot your Raspberry pi with Raspian OS. Use the Raspberry Pi imager tool to do that.
Once installed, the software opens the tool.
Next, choose the OS type.
Then select the drive. One of the great features of this tool is we can add the SSH and Wi-Fi credentials directly into the OS file, even without turning on the Raspberry Pi. For that, select the settings icon in the tool.
Next, start burning the OS into the SD card.
Once the writing is finished, insert the SD card into the Raspberry Pi.
Then power on the device. The first time it will take some to boot and connect to Wi-Fi to 5–10 minutes and look at your router status, you can see there will be a new device connected to your router.
Next, use serial terminal software to communicate with SSH.
Then run this command to install the casaos.
curl -fsSL https://get.casaos.io | sudo bash
You will see this message on the terminal, first it will try to install all the necessary components regarding the casa os.
Once the installation is finished, you will see this kind of message also an IP address of the casa server.
Next type the Ip in the Brower, you will see the casa os screen.
And then click the Go and enter your access details for the casa os.
Finally, you will see the beautifull home screen.
Next click on the app store, you can see threre are bunch of pre available apps.
Also open the file manager, you will see all the files of your raspberry,
not only the system drive. It will show you the removable drive also.
That's all about the CasaOS, it's very beautiful and simple light weight os right? . And it also includes a bunch of apps, including pihole, plex and many more. Will see you in another tutorial. Bye,
