Getting Started Guides:

DietPi - Minimal Raspbian Image
At its core, DietPi is the goto image for a minimal Raspbian/Debian Server install.
We've stripped down and removed everything from the official Raspbian image to give us a bare minimal Raspbian server image that we call DietPi-Core.
DietPi - Core (Minimal image stats):
- Minimal and optimized Raspbian Image for all Pi models.
- DietPi for RPi is built on Raspbian, and, uses the official Raspbian repositories.
- DietPi-Software: Install optional "ready to run" software, quickly and easily, with optimizations unique to your Pi model.
- DietPi-Config: A feature rich config tool for your Pi. Overclock and tweak your pi, scan and connect to wifi SSID's, and many many more options.
- DietPi-Ramlog: Mounts /var/log to RAM, clears hourly. increasing system performance and SD card lifespan.
- ARMhf - hardware floating point calculations.
- Small 120MB compressed image.
- Fits on a 1GB or greater SD card
- Only 11 running processes after boot
- 16MB of memory usage after boot
-Lightweight SSH server (Dropbear) is installed instead of OpenSSH.
-Wifi Support. Unlike most Raspbian minimal images, ours includes full Wifi support.

Built from the ground up, DietPi-Software allows for popular, optional install choices. All of which are pre-configured and "ready to run" with all the optimizations and configurations done for you.
By applying unique optimizations specific to your Pi Model (v1-256mb, v1-512mb, v2-1024mb), DietPi ensures you get the maximum performance from your Pi and the software you choose to install:
