NodeBB on Cloudron
At Cloudron.io, we are making a platform for self-hosting web apps. We have packaged NodeBB for the Cloudron - https://cloudron.io/button.html?app=org.nodebb.cloudronapp.
You can see a demo at https://my-demo.cloudron.me (username: cloudron password: cloudron) . You can install nodeBB from the App Store menu item. If you are a developer and would like to help contributing to the app, you can find the source code here - https://github.com/cloudron-io/nodebb-app/.
Let me know if you have any questions.
What backend are you using?
The NodeBB app uses mongodb.
For example, CPU, memory, disk?
By default, the app is configured to use 300MB RAM. But this is tunable with a UI depending on the traffic you get https://cloudron.io/blog/2016-09-08-release-0.20.0.html. The Disk and CPU depends on the server you install NodeBB on.
How is NodeBB Co figured (redis, mongo)? Do you get admin control on the hosted plan?
Yes, you get admin control.
I want to clarify that we are not a managed NodeBB provider (if you want that, it's probably best to get it from NodeBB itself (https://nodebb.org/pricing). Instead, the Cloudron is a platform that makes self-hosting easy. We automate updates, backups, dns/ssl management etc. You can run the Cloudron platform on your own servers or get a server from us. Think of this as a very highly optimized ubuntu for web apps.
Great to see third party cloud hosts taking up NodeBB such as yours.
I've merged documentation for this: https://github.com/NodeBB/nodebb-english/pull/107
I'm planning some revamps on our commercial site (nodebb.org) and that may include a page linking third parties to host.
Give me a shout at [email protected], there are some opportunities that we can talk about. Thanks!
