Does Photonix run on Raspberry Pi / ARM?

Yes, this feature was added in April 2021 and we have tested on Raspberry Pi 4 Model B and Pi 2 Model B. This covers both major architectures: ARM32v7 and ARM64v8.

ARM Single Board Computers (SBCs) are ideal for low-powered home servers and allows you to access your photos while you are away from home.

Due to the fact that most ARM computers are lower power and have less memory and CPU performance than a typical computer there are a few things we recommend to ensure it doesn't get overloaded.

I love this project! My dream would be a photo organizer / tagger that just goes through all photos at night and automatically detects and learns the contents.... I will follow you for this project and am happy to test any versions.

I'm amazed I hadn't heard of Photonix before - it seems perfect for my photo library. Great work, and congratulations on this release!

A question: do you expect it to work well on ARM SBCs like Raspberry Pi 4?
