UNSOLVED Move installed plugins from development to production environment
What is the most proper way to move developed plugins from development to production environment?
Publish to npm :)
Thank you for response!)
But what if my plugin is very project relative and shouldn't be publicly published?
I was thinking about to exclude plugin folder in
Also is there any special tool for exporting NodeBB settings? Or I should do just regular mongodb dump?
If it's a private plugin, you can just copy the plugin folder into your node_modules folder under NodeBB, but the plugin folder has to be named like nodebb-plugin-*
There's also the option of using a private npm repo, but there's not an option to choose repos in the core NodeBB system right now
I think I'll go the way of placing plugin into node_modules folder, excluding it from
.gitignoreand committing it.
Thank you again!
You won't need to put it in the .gitignore as the node_modules folder should already be excluded :)
I mean exclude from excluding the plugin folder :)
