The blocks based, easy to use setup tool for Raspberry Pi

PiBakery demo screen

PiBakery is a a blocks based drag and drop tool that allows you to customise and edit your Raspberry Pi without powering the Pi on. Simply insert your SD card into your computer, choose which features you want on your Pi, and hit Write. PiBakery will write the latest version of Raspbian to your SD card, with your customisations added too.

For more information see or follow @PiBakery on Twitter.

PiBakery v2

The latest version of PiBakery, PiBakery v2, is a complete re-write of the original application, with many additional features, including:

  • PiBakery no longer bundles .img files in the installer/program. Instead, the user must supply their own Raspbian .img file. This means that any Raspbian-based .img can be used, with the possibility of other distros in the future
  • Ability to edit any Raspbian SD card, not just ones that have been written with PiBakery
  • More robust Linux support
  • Ability to add multiple block sources, so the user can maintain their own block repo with their own custom blocks
  • Importing of recipes (.xml files) created with older versions of PiBakery no longer fail, instead they are converted automatically into the new format
  • The entire program no longer runs as root/admin. Instead, just the writer process is elevated when needed to be
  • Modularised code to increase readability, and add option for command line mode in the future

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).
