Serving web pages from embedded devices is not easy task as embedded devices have limitations in processing power , memory available etc. But with Raspberry Pi this task becomes very easy. We have lot of packages, programming platforms and libraries to chose from because pi is from Linux family. In this post I am going to show how to setup Pi to server web pages. I am going to use python to serve web pages. Once we have initial setup running , we can even expose this web services to the internet using ngrok or yaler (if your behind the firewall , you web services will work only in LAN).
python will be already installed in your Pi, so the next step is to install flask. you may get some warnings you can safely ignore them.flask is a simple framework ,you can use for developing web apss. you can learn more about flask here (second and third steps are optional)
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
