Lightweight justice for your single-board computer! optimised • simplified • for everyone Website • Documentation • View all supported platforms Ready to run optimised software choices with dietpi-software Feature-rich configuration tool for your device with dietpi-config.

Introduction

DietPi is an extremely lightweight Debian-based OS. It is highly optimised for minimal CPU and RAM resource usage, ensuring your SBC always runs at its maximum potential.

The dietpi programs use lightweight whiptail menus. You'll spend more time enjoying DietPi and applications you need and less time staring at the command line.

Use dietpi-software to quick and easy install Ready to Run & Optimised applications for your system. DietPi will do all the necessary configurations, including starting the services. Few highlights: Desktop Environments, Remote Desktop access, Media systems and Media Players, Torrents and Downloading, Cloud and Backup, Gaming, Social & Search, Camera and Surveillance, WiFi Hotspot, System Stats & Management, Home automation, Hardware & Voice Projects, Webserver Stacks, DNS server / PiHole, File Servers, Cloud printing and Print 3D and much more.

Use dietpi-services to control which installed software has higher or lower priority levels (nice, affinity, policy scheduler).

dietpi-update automatically checks for updates and informs you when they are available. Update instantly, without having to write a new image. DietPi automation allows you to completely automate a DietPi installation with no user input, simply by configuring dietpi.txt before powering on.
