Raspberry Pi – Sharing file between PI and Mac

Mounting the raspberry pi home directory to avoid the push / pull game with git can become painful. It’s relatively straight forward to get shared folders using the appletalk protocol

Install the apple talk protocol on the pi

sudo apt-get install netatalk

On the host mac, enter

open afp://

Enter the username and password when prompted, your mounted folder will be available in the /Volumes directory in the root of the file system

cd /Volume


Innovative, entrepreneurial and positively unsatisfied mind that constantly pushes the tech boundaries to create new solutions and devices that change people’s lives. Throughout my career, I have had the opportunity of having a multi-disciplinary experience, which led me to wear the hats of: Architect, IoT Consultant (Internet of Things Consultant), Developer, Designer, Engineer, Server Admin, Consultant and Project Manager – to name a few. Based on this diversified background, I get projects done by following smart ideas and well-planned goals. In a world which is getting more unconventional by the day, I use unconventional ways, and a very healthy dose of integrity, to create devices and solutions that help companies go from a steady present to a dynamic future.
