Never mind, it was a simple memory issue that was causing npm install to die.
Fixed with these instructions:
Does anyone have an experience to install and run NodeBB to Codio ? (https://codio.com/) IDE.
All tips appreciated.
EDIT: Seems you can't deploy to a live environment without a paid plan, so I can only test it so far, but it comes with nodejs already installed, so assuming you have a paid plan, and access to the command line, following the ubuntu install above should work fine. (Changing the first line to just
sudo apt-get install redis-server imagemagick npm)
If you're looking for a free IDE to test NodeBB, I'd recommend Koding.com, works the same was as codio.
May as well make a quick guide to deploying on Koding while I've got some time spare.
@julian I need a Personal Assistant, can I put this on my expenses?
Thank you! I know it should be not a problem but what I am missing here is the exact syntax. I 've tried to follow the: https://docs.nodebb.org/en/latest/installing/cloud.html but most of them are out of date.
(I see the update for Koding now, yours? :))
I develop on chromebook most of the time so I went through all the cloud APIs. And Codio is a winner for me!
Thanks for taking the time to do the Koding. I will have a look at it when I'll have a minute.
All sorted now:
Thank you all for your help.
