WHAT IS PROJECT SPACES?
Once installed, Projects Spaces replaces the need for multiple SD cards to manage different projects for your Raspberry Pi. A “Project Space” is a vanilla install of Raspbian Jessie Lite that can be used to test code or create different projects in their own isolated environments. This prevents elements of your separate projects to conflict with each other across Project Spaces. Each space has its own /boot and /root partition, so you can even have different settings in config.txt. and password protect each space for multiple users.
Learn and explore
You can create up to 5 project spaces on one drive and dedicate each space to a different OS like creating a Desktop Environment, web browser, personal network storage location, and more.
Easily manage multiple projects on one setup. Now you can eliminate the need to save multiple projects on multiple SD cards.
Learn to code
Can also be used in a classroom environment or by multiple users, each space can be password protected so that students can individually save and access their work from one setup.
