Fetches and Manages Raspberry PI Images

Project Description

Raspberry pi image baker

This tool fetches the latest Raspberry PI images from the official sources and keeps it in a local cache. You can then burn the image to SD card from the cached copy.

Using the tool allows you to script PI installs using the latest images and prevents unfortunate mishaps when writing it to the SD card.

All downloads are kept in local XDG specified cache directory, ~/.cache/pibake by default.

New images have new names so old versions are kept until manually deleted from the cache.

This means the images are always at hand and you can update your local copies when and if required.
