Could you make the download section filterable by chipset?

Recommended Posts

When i look into the armbian project and would like to get a special chipset and thus search for a armbian board that supports this chipset, i cant filter for those here:

https://www.armbian.com/download/

 

It would be great to be able to filter to for example this kind of chipsets:

Amlogic, NXP, Rockchip, ...

 

And not just the maker of the boards.

Armbian is not selling boards and maintaining each device by SoC means a lot of work, are you willing to take over this task for around 50 boards that change on a regular basis?

the solution for you isnt far away :)

 

You could create URL-Links like this:

Amlogic  Rockchip  NXP-Freescale

https://www.armbian.com/download/?tx_soc=amlogic
https://www.armbian.com/download/?tx_soc=rockchip
https://www.armbian.com/download/?tx_soc=nxp-freescale

On (every?) download-page for a board is a part with "Specifications" icons. And there is also one for the CPU or manufacturer like at the page for the NanoPi Neo2.
There is a H5 and Allwinner Icon/Button.

 

The link behind the Icon/Button is
https://www.armbian.com/download/?tx_soc=h5

https://www.armbian.com/download/?tx_soc=allwinner

 

If you press this H5-button the download-page will list zu all SoCs which use the H5-CPU :)

If you press this Allwinner-button the download-page will list zu all SoCs which use a Allwinner-CPU :)

 

You could also find other values for ?tx_soc= which let you find chipsets, cpus, manufacturers or models

like a20, h2, h3, h6, imx6, rk3288, a33, a64, allwinner, amlogic, nexcell, nxp-freescale, rockchip, s905, marvell and so on....

Thank you very much, this is really cool.

However, it depends on the correctness of information on the website, of which I am not a fan of.  Allwinner for example I rather collect the information on https://linux-sunxi.org   and refer to this page. Repeating information that is elsewhere already collected is just a potential source of error or confusion (in case it is different).
