Using a Raspberry Pi with JMRI on the layout

Is anyone using a Raspberry Pi with JRMI for programming their decoders or running their layout?

I recently purchased a RPi 3B+ and am looking at using it to program my decoders and possibly integrate it with a SPROG 3 and/or my Digitrax DCC, so I'm interested in any experiences had by others.

As a result the display has been stripped down to a basic loop to loop with no staging yard.
