I'd like to use the Rasp Pi Camera to take a picture of my plant and then publish to my iCloud account.

Q: What is the best way to publish to iCloud from a Raspberry Pi?

Thank you.

Snap store offers a version of iCloud for Raspbian that you could use.

  • on sudo apt install core I get: error: snap "core" is not available on stable for this architecture (armel) but exists on other architectures (amd64, arm64, armhf, i386, ppc64el, s390x).... so i guess it won't work at least on the rasp pi build i have. The other challenge is it is not clear how to cli or programmatically put files into the icloud folder...hmm.. thank you. Jun 23, 2021 at 14:45
  • @user1255603 armel? what model Pi, OS (including version) do you run on?

The right command will be

sudo apt install snapd
sudo snap install core

You have to install snapd first.
