How would I safely open up a raspberry pi to the internet?

And using a firewall at least. Secure the pi as best you can as well.

@robjloranger @doneljan I'm wanting to put my main website dev instance on to it so I can ssh into it from anywhere rather than having separate instances on different machines

@DigitalMisfit

If you don't have a static IP at home you will need to use something like tor or a vpn tunnel to a vps with a static IP. Which defeats the purpose a little, but you hold your data so still better.

Some basic server hardening should protect the pi however. No password logins on ssh, firewall, fail 2 ban. I'm sure I'm missing things 😊

@DigitalMisfit
That will not be visible outside your local network.

Your ISP likely assigns a dynamic IP address for your modem.
