IMatch on Raspberry Pi
« on: March 13, 2019, 09:33:45 PM »
I've just got my Raspberry Pi, i've uploaded it with Raspian (aka Linux). The idea is for it to be my web server - we'll see!

I started thinking, there is also Windows type software Windows IoT, I think to be used with Internet of Things. I got to wondering if IMatch software might run on this operating system... has anybody tried?

Wouldn't IMatchAnywhere on a powerful Windows server be a better option? I mean, that thing is designed to be accessed via browser...

I've posted this here before - but I successfully view my images via IMA on my large screen TV using a Beelink mini PC... it is powerful enough to run Firefox/Chrome well and display the images from my IMA server which runs on my main PC.  Very successful paring - IMA and the mini PC's (or even stick PC's)...  couple that with a bluetooth keyboard/mouse pad and it is a great success.  I've even begun to keyword my images from the comfort of the couch now that IMA allows for editing!!!

What are you planning to use for storage?

Windows IoT is a bare-bones, stripped-down version of Windows, designed for IoT purposes. You cannot run 'real' Windows applications on it.

Besides, the CPU in the Pi is now about 2 or 3 years old and not very powerful for common purposes. I use a Pi 3B+ as my video server (with KODI), and others for firewall/filter and for other experimental purposes. But it really has not enough power for demanding applications.

IMatch WebServices run fine on low-end PCs and even PC Sticks, but these have a lot more CPU power than the Raspberry Pi.
It also runs quite well on entry-level cloud Windows machines, which cost only a few dollars per month (if you don't run them 24/7).
