    I am using Armbian for my head-less servers. Currently this setup is running on a Raspberry Pi 1, a Raspberry Pi 2 and a Olimex A20-OLinuXino-LIME.

    Installation is quite simple.

    1. Install dependencies

      apt-get install -y apt-transport-https

    2. Add respository key
      wget -q -O - | sudo apt-key add -

    3. Add repository
      echo 'deb jessie main' | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/hypriot.list
      apt-get update

    4. Install Hypriot 
      apt-get install -y docker-hypriot
      systemctl enable docker

    Afterwards docker is ready to use.

    You can test your docker installation:

    Keep in mind that only ARM-based containers will run on ARM devices. You can search for valid containers with tags like "armhf" or "hypriot":
