In this tutorial, we’ll show you how simple it is to deploy the popular messaging middleware app, RabbitMQ onto a Raspberry Pi 3 using the Pantacor Platform.
Please note that there is now a new website for Pantavisor Linux at pantavisor.io. You’ll find new tutorials as well as instructions on how to use Pantabox, our front-end for managing Pantavisor Linux.
Make your RPI3 device ready to deploy RabbitMQ with these 6 Steps:
Step 1: Burn the RPI3 initial stable image into your sd card.
a) Download RPI3 image
b) unxz the device image
$ unxz rpi3_initial_stable.img.xz
c) Burn image into sd card using Raspberry Pi Imager 1.2
Step 2: Boot your RPI3
a) Insert your sd card and supply the power
Step 3: Sign up for Pantacor Hub
Step 4: Download and install the `pvr` CLI
Note: pvr is a CLI that allows you to interact with your device through Pantacor Hub image sharing platform. With pvr you can share your firmware and projects as if they were in a git tree. Move the pvr binary to your bin folder after you have download it.
pvr clone; pvr commit; pvr post
To install from github source code:
$ go get gitlab.com/pantacor/pvr $ go build -o ~/bin/pvr gitlab.com/pantacor/pvr
Note: You need “GOLANG” to be installed in your system for building pvr from github source code.
Step 5: Detect and claim your device
a) Connect a LAN cable between your RPI3 & computer/Router.
b) Open your terminal & run
$ pvr scan
c) Claim your device
$ pvr claim -c merely-regular-gorilla https://api.pantahub.com:443/devices/5f1b9c44e193a5000afa9901
d) Log into Pantacor Hub and check whether the newly claimed device appears in the dashboard.
Step 6: Clone the device to your computer using the Clone URL of your device
$ pvr clone https://pvr.pantahub.com/sirinibin/presently_learning_pelican/0 presently_learning_pelican
Now your device is ready to deploy your RabbitMQ app
Deploy RabbitMQ onto the device
Step 1: Move to device root dir
`$ cd presently_learning_pelican`
Step 2: Add a new app “rabbitmq” into the device
sirinibin/arm32v7-rabbitmq:3.8.6-rc.1 is a Docker image made for the devices with ARM32 architecture
You can customise the docker image for your custom requirements.
$ pvr app add rabbitmq --from=sirinibin/arm32v7-rabbitmq:3.8.6-rc.1
Step 3: Commit and post the changes to the device
$ pvr add . $ pvr commit $ pvr post
Step 4: Check the device status changes in the Pantacor Hub dashboard and wait for the status “DONE”
Step 5: Verify the “rabbitmq” app deployment
Access the device IP: http://10.42.0.231:15672 in your web browser.
You are done!
