How to Set up Your Raspberry Pi Without a Keyboard, Monitor, or Mouse
If you don't have an extra keyboard and monitor laying around, or if you generally prefer working on the command line, then you'll benefit from a headless Raspberry Pi setup. In this case, headless simply means that we'll set up and use the Raspberry Pi without any monitor or other GUI. This guide will walk you through the process of setting up a headless Raspberry Pi.
I recommend using a Raspberry Pi 3/4 or Raspberry PI Zero W since they have onboard WiFi. If you're using a different version of the Pi, you'll need to add a Raspberry Pi WiFi USB adapter.
In addition to the Pi, you'll need a power supply, SD card, and another computer.
