First off, let's prep your Raspberry Pi. The Johnson County Library MakerSpace has a comprehensive guide on how to do that.

fab appto generate a temporary version of Lunchbox for review.
From your Rasperry Pi, you can use an Web browser to connect to the local server at
127.0.0.1:8000 to check Lunchbox. If everything looks like it's working, you can move on to personalizing Lunchbox for your org.
It's important to personalize Lunchbox before building it and hosting it on your server: settings are spread over several configuration files in the final installation, so doing it now will save you a lot of time. The configuration instructions for logos, URLS and contact information on NPR's repository will walk you through everything you need to do.
Next, fill in the server information for the destination server in
app_config.py. We used the following settings:
FILE_SERVER_USERis the same as our
FILE_SERVER_USER = 'pi'
FILE_SERVER = '127.0.0.1'
FILE_SERVER_PATH = '~/lunchbox-pi'
If everything looks fine, you're ready for the final render and deployment.
