I was installing using the guidance available here and ran into difficulties. I'll try again soon when I have time to troubleshoot and provide feedback. It seems the installation isn't as easy as Ghost was for me.
What are the changes in nodebb 0.9.4?
What are the changes in nodebb 0.9.4? Do i need to upgrade to it? Is it tested ?
You can see the changes from 0.9.3 to 0.9.4 here https://github.com/NodeBB/NodeBB/commits/v0.9.x. It's mostly bug fixes that are back ported.
Is it tested ?
NodeBB’s periodic releases are located in the Releases. These releases contain what is usually considered the most bug-free code, and is designed to be used on production-level instances of NodeBB.
0.9.4is included in those, it applies.
Do i need to upgrade to it?
As with all software, you are always encouraged to update to latest stable (as of definition above). Due to new features, improvements and bug-fixes.
@Nisthar v0.9.4 is an interim release leading up to the next major release. It was released mainly as the last release had some issues on installation, plus a couple of backported changes.
@julian and now I have problems setting up a fresh install xD
npm install --productionwithin the
./nodebb setupremoves extraneous packages such as
mongodbresulting in crashing later within the same
./nodebb setupcall... I have no clue why thought.
@frissdiegurke Hm... I use Node v5 on my development machine, but for v0.9.4 specifically, I switched back (via nvm) to v0.12 to build the dependencies.
During the build process, I execute
npm shrinkwrapto generate a shrinkwrap file, and I'm not sure whether running
npm install --productionin v4/v5 causes extraneous packages to be removed...
Does this happen on master too?
To summarize a chat discussion with @julian:
We came up with this issue report for NPM: https://github.com/npm/npm/issues/11682
[email protected]^3the command
npm installwith an existing
shrinkwrapremoves extraneous packages which - besides breaking the
./nodebb upgrade- would cause all additional installed plugins that are installed to vanish on
