Run Rasa on your Raspberry Pi

Rasa is a popular choice for the NLU component of Rhasspy, but installing it on a Raspberry Pi was a challenge. I took up the challenge, and as a result I can finally announce a Docker image for the latest Rasa version on ARMv7.

I only tried Rasa’s demo app, and training is quite slow, so I don’t know whether this will be useful for Rhasspy, but If you’re using the Rasa NLU component in Rhasspy, give it a try with the instructions in Rhasspy’s documentation. The Docker command in the instructions should be changed to:

docker run -it -v "$(pwd):/app" -p 5005:5005 koenvervloesem/rasa:latest run --enable-api

Let me know if you encounter problems.
