So, you want to install RavenDB on your Pi. Otherwise, why would you be here? So, let's dive in. The easiest way to do it is to go to the RavenDB Raspberry Pi page and download the image. After downloading, you’ll have:


The next step is to extract the file, giving us the disk image.

That's it, your RavenDB server is ready to rock!
