Setup dess on a Raspberry Pi

Registration of atSign in your private dess

Now, we will proceed to install dess, following the official instructions. Make sure curl is installed, we will use curl to pull the dess installation file:

sudo apt install curl

Finally, run the dess installer:

curl -fsSL https://getdess.atsign.com | sudo bash

Once the installer is finished you should be prompted like so:

Dess installed, please move on to the sudo dess-create command.

At this step you should already have your atSign registered at atsign.com. If not go do it!

I have registered my own free atSign (@44likelycanary) which I will link to my dess.

In your instance console, navigate to dess folder. If you were following this guide it will be located in:

We now need to create the service that will host our atSign by executing the dess-create command:

sudo dess-create <@your-atSign> <your-domain> <opened-port> <email-address> <service-name: your atsign with no '@'>```

For instance: sudo dess-create @44likelycanary 4atsign.link 8000 tutorial@example.com likelycanary

To make it more understandable:

  • I will be registering my atSign @44likelycanary.

  • I will be using my domain 4atsign.link which I have registered.

  • I am using port 8000 which I have opened in my router firewall (typically 6464, but as we can see, it can be any other).

  • My registration email address is tutorial@example.com (this email is used to sign the SSL certificates).

  • The last likelycanary is the name that docker will use to track the service.

If everything is successful you should see output like this:

At this moment your atSign is registered on your dess.
