About

I make things. I make software, hardware, and softgoods. Because I have a full time job at a tech company and way too many hobbies, I try to automate everything that I have to do more than a few times a week. It's obvious that I usually use a Raspberry Pi to automate things and this is how this website was born.

This database was created out of frustration trying to locate a Raspberry Pi product in the height of the chip and supply chain shortages of 2021. I got tired of visiting multiple websites every day trying to figure out if there were any Raspberry Pi's in stock. I coded this website in a few days during my spare time and had it hosted on a Raspberry Pi for a couple of weeks before deciding to make it publicly available. This is not hosted on a Raspberry Pi anymore.

Although they are hard to find, Raspberry Pi computers do come in stock every so often. Keep yours eyes peeled and visit the main page often, The last few Raspberry Pi's I purchased was using this tool. If you find this website useful, share with someone that might also find it useful. There is no share button, so you'll have to go old school and copy/paste the link.

Why aren't some of the vendors listed?

I tried to include all of the obvious vendors that carry Raspberry Pi products, but not all web stores allow a script (robot) to get information from their website. As you can imagine, I don't update this website manually every few minutes or so :). All the heavy lifting is done by scanning the product pages and updating the database this website runs on. If there is an authorized reseller that is missing (and is also not listed below) and you would like it to be added, send me an email or message me on Twitter.

I've tried to add the vendors below without success:

  • CanaKit, too much work to scrape/reverse engineer.
  • Micro Center, they only sell in store and there is no way for me to track that.
  • Jkollerup/raspberrypi.dk, they asked to not be included in the list.
  • Kiwi Electronics, they blocked me and don't want to be listed on the site

I'm building a bot to do X, can I use your information?

I'm not a hypocrite so I'm not against bots. If you are looking to create a notification system for personal use, please use the RSS feed and don't hit the site more than once a minute. High frequency bots will get blocked. Feel free to ge in touch with me if you want to use the data on this site. Business/commercial use is not allowed.

Is it possible to filter the RSS Feed?

Yes, the same filters from the main page are available to filter the RSS feed. You can use the widget below to customize the RSS Feed filters
