Crochet is now an official FreeBSD project.. really a well-done platform
for building images, aimed initially just at ARM but it expanded.

I am very happy to announce that the Crochet project has officially
moved from my
personal account to the FreeBSD project account on github. It can now
be found at:
In particular, this means that a larger group of freebsd developers are
in ongoing Crochet development.
Practically speaking, github will redirect old URLs to the new location
and the move
should be transparent to existing Crochet users and contributors.
For those unfamiliar, Crochet is a tool for generating runnable system
FreeBSD. It was originally developed in mid-2012 for building
BeagleBone images and
has since expanded with support for many other ARM boards, as well as
and VMWare images. It is similar in many respects to nanobsd, but has
more of a
focus on cross-building and supporting a variety of boot systems.
(Although I don’t
recommend it as a regular practice, I have confirmed that Crochet can
runnable VMWare i386 images from a BeagleBone.
Best to all,
