If you have been reading my blog lately you know that I have done a lot of projects involving Raspberry Pi‘s, the $35 dollar credit card sized Linux computer. Because of its small size, I recently started of thinking of projects that would allow me to be mobile with the Pi.
That led me to this post.
There are plenty of resources online about tethering the iPhone 5 with the graphical interface, but I wanted to be able ‘hotswap’ my Raspberry Pi’s Internet connection without command line, and without the graphical interface. Plug and play, essentially.
I was able to get this working last night using Raspian (a free operating system based on Debian optimized for the Raspberry Pi hardware) and a few scripts.
