Please provide more information about your build such as on what Debian version it is based (hardfloat support?), what is the default repository used by your build?

Cool! Good job!

I've posted the news on my blog if you don't mind.

What's the difference between server and a stripped version of Debian? I'd like a DietPi for use with emulators. Maybe the Server Ed. would be usefull for that.

Thanks. :D

Its a completely stripped down version of Raspbian. Which, to my knowledge has hardfloat support.

Why call it Debian?
Because technically it is.
Everything has been removed, stripped and optimized, whilst ensuring dependences and the repository are fully functional.
The only real link to Raspbian is the repository. Which was the ideal goal for the project since that repository is designed for the Pi.

DietPi Core = The minimal build. Which i also use for all other releases.
DietPi BitTorrent + FTP = Is based on the DietPi Core with the additional programs installed. The optimizations and pre-setup of these applications have also been completed to ensure the Pi runs at its best.

Basically choose the DietPi Core if you want to install your own software. Choose DietPi BitTorrent + FTP if you want to run BitTorrent + FTP :)

KUDOS to the DietPi project!!!!!

I wanted to respond to this post to show my appreciation for Dan and his DietPi project.

I reached out to Dan Knight a few months ago, just to ask him whether we could use his DietPi image as the basis for the appliance of our opensource project. He didn't just respond via mail, with a binary yes/no answer, but he spent weeks with us to get our application to run out-of-the-box on his DietPi platform.

The success of DietPi is not only

the lean-and-mean distro
the intelligence behind the screen to automatically transform the distro into any type of appliance

==>What makes the DietPi project unique and successful is the dedication, openness, helpfulness of its inventor, Dan Knight.<==

It is people like Dan who bring the opensource community to a next level. Being not only interested in their own project, but looking across the boundaries to see how his project can add value elsewhere.

Thanks for all your dedication and valuable work Dan!!!!
