What about creating a Docker image that runs RACHEL? In my experience with other software, Docker offers a pretty easy user experience, easier than, say, VirtualBox, and much lighter in terms of GB to download. I see that Vagrant is used in rachelproject/rachelpiOS , so maybe there’s a way to use Vagrant similar to Docker. Or maybe a Snap? My ideal is that with the smallest possible download, I run one command in my Linux terminal and ta-da!, RACHEL is running, configured with a network bridge so that it is available on the local network at its own IP. How can we make this happen? Would this get more attention by opening an issue on GitHub?
Background on how I got to this forum: I went to worldpossible-dot-org, and clicked on oer2go, and downloaded some modules, and then realized that there’s no explanation at oer2go of what to do with these modules in order to use them. So I looked around, and as far as I can tell, the only documented way to use the modules is to download the RaspberryPi image of 64 GB, and then either install it on its own hardware, follow the steps described by @AhmadLM in this post, or maybe create a RasPi virtual machine in VirtualBox or somesuch. At any rate, those all involve downloading another 64 GB, which could take a few days on my connection. A Docker image could require much less download, and allow much greater flexibility.
(Other options for the future include peer-to-peer internet and web protocols such as IPFS and Dat, and related projects like Beaker Browser, but for now, what I mention above seems more stable.)
