Running Mule 4 in Docker on Raspberry Pi

In my last article, we saw how we can install Mule 4 on a Raspberry Pi. And while Mule 4 runs perfectly fine on the latest Raspberry Pi’s, you may find yourself in need of a more scalable solution than a bare-metal runtime installation. In this post, we will look at running Mule in a Docker container on Raspberry Pi.

What an amazing time it is! We recently announced a major milestone: the GA release of Mule 4!

The new release of Mule is all about ease of use and accelerating the speed of development. With up to 50% fewer steps and concepts to learn, Mule 4 jumpstarts integration projects with better access to data and a completely new reactive, non-blocking (and self-tuning) runtime engine!

MuleSoft IoT: How to Use Mule Runtime to Light an LED Bulb

MuleSoft’s lightweight Runtime Engine can be used to expose microservices and APIs on any IoT device. In this post, I will demonstrate how users can use MuleSoft and a Python script to create a simple API that lights up an LED bulb 10 times in a loop. To get started, please refer to the requirements, video tutorial, and steps below.

Requirements:

Raspberry Pi 3, LED Bulbs,

Light Up the Internet of Things

To liven up the 2nd floor of the MuleSoft SF office, we decided to showcase a slightly modified version of the IoT demo we gave in last year’s Chicago and New York MuleSoft Summits. The demo we have listens for any mentions of @mulesoft on Twitter. If found, a Mule app running on a Raspberry Pi makes the lights glow.

Raspberry Pi gets an API

In the Internet of things no device is an island. And while Raspberry Pi devices are pretty cool on their own adding an API makes them a lot more interesting. We have been playing around with Raspberry for a while now and have a small distribution of Mule, called ‘Anypoint Edge’ that happily runs on small embeddable devices like the Raspberry Pi.  These ARM-based devices are taking the world by storm since they are lower powered,
