Hi there. This is a rather basic question (sorry if it is too obvious).
Is there an objection to build and run a container that uses local resources on the GPIO for example (LEDs or sensors) ? I would expect to have to install the necessary drivers on the host.

Is there a trick to flash a new SD while seated in the Pi ? Sounds like changing the wheels of a driving car. But I have already seen so many miracles with computers. I wonder....

@jmMeessen for using GPIO pins on the Pi just follow this basic tutorial It works great with the latest SD card versions, I just tested it on the new HypriotOS last weekend.
Changing SD card on the fly in a running Pi will not work, it crashes the system immediately!

@gnormandin You can run Docker perfectly out of the box in jessie/arm64, hypriot/image-builder-odroid-c2#1
Some dependencies need to be resolved manually with aptitude (aptitude proposes to install more recent packages coming from testing, etc.)
And docker installs without any hassle on Archlinux ARM64.

I basically need to start the pi without the to manually log in
