Kotori can be installed through a Debian package ¹², by using Docker images from Docker Hub, from the Python Package Index (PyPI) or from the Git repository.

For running Kotori in a full configuration, you will need some other infrastructure services like Mosquitto, InfluxDB, Grafana and optionally MongoDB.

Have fun and enjoy your data acquisition!


Installation variants

¹ When choosing to install from the Debian package repository, you will also be able to receive appropriate Debian packages for Mosquitto, InfluxDB and Grafana through the DaqZilla package repository. This makes it easy to setup the complete DAQ system from a single package source.

² All of the Debian packages are available for amd64 and armhf architectures to support installations on RaspberryPi, Beaglebone, Odroid or similar ARM-based SBC machines.


Some effort has been done to make the installation process of Kotori and associated software components as easy and straight forward as possible.

However, things go south sometimes so there might still be rough edges we would love to learn about. So, please don’t hesitate to drop us a note by opening an issue on GitHub or reaching out to Thank you very much.
