I think you are referring to vars like
If that's the case you are right those can and probably should move into the functions where they are used.
Heroku allows developers to run small instances for free (even their redis add-on is free), but if your site becomes popular, you will have to pay.
We have a guide to setting up NodeBB on Heroku in our wiki.
I was working on my NodeBB server last night and noticed how actually annoying it is to set up, so not anyone can simply set it up...
So I started to ponder if I can make the process faster and easier for everyone to use and I came up with the following idea which I was able to get working on a NodeBB install integrated right into NodeBB which basically took all the methods and checked.
So What i did was the actual following:
Updated App.JS to support require.Resolve() method to check for all needed files
Made a basic requirements reader that was able to read the NodeBB package info
*Made it so it test each module to see if it existed on every start up, checked for updates and updated if needed or downloaded them and installed them if needed
Doing this took out about 15 to 20 mins of work for a none NodeJS user so all someone know would have to do is basically run
Without needing all the other things such as
Or anything of the sorts, i am working on also making it get it's other needed resources like redis and a few others
Will Post source to my github when I get home from work
I'll post some stuff here regarding my migration from SMF 2.x forum to NodeBB. I've had a forum for ~4 years and it's about time I revamped it. I'm a huge node.js and redis fan, so having a forum written in php is blasphemous.
thanks for all the effort you've put into this!:)
Sorry about the delay -- and thank you very much for your contributions!
Now that the campaign is over, we don't intend on stopping development. We're aiming to push more stability fixes and aim to be "feature-complete" within the next couple weeks.
Perks will be fulfilled as soon as possible, although fulfilment of the SaaS hosting perks will have to wait until the SaaS portal itself is up and running.
