NodeBB on Cloud9


  • :belt_onion:

    Ok, since I'm apparently the only one having issues... tried following this:

    On a fresh Cloud9 workspace (I picked the NodeJS template though).

    First of all, Cloud9 has no idea what nada-nix is, but apparently redis is already installed anyway.

    I pulled NodeBB 1.0.1 just fine, as expected.

    echo $IP always return 0.0.0.0 so... ummm?

    I kept going anyway, it apparently installed, but trying to run it:

    So... yeah...



  • @Onyx Whoa, that must be some old OS.

    For what it's worth, redis is pretty trivial to build from sources. The only gotcha is then setting it up to start up and stay alive, because AFAIR it doesn't come with any flavor of init script out of the box.

    Yeah, I think the repo is too old...



  • @Onyx Also, version 2.8.9 sounds familiar. Too lazy to look into it, but I THINK it was the version when they introduced keyspace notifications.

    If that's the case, if you hack at nodebb, you can probably get it working, except you won't get live updates, as crappy as they are.


  • :belt_onion:

    @cartman82 Yeah, I think I'll just get a proper hosted VM sorted tomorrow and just skip the C9 bullshit.

    Also, this is helpful:

    onyx47:~/workspace/nodebb ((v1.0.1)) $ uname -a
    Linux onyx47-nodebb-onyx-2784673 4.2.0-c9 #1 SMP Wed Sep 30 16:14:37 UTC 2015 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
    

    Gee, thanks, I guess telling me it's based on Ubuntu 14.04 or some other number we stupid humans like too use would be too easy.


  • sockdevs

    @Onyx To be fair, it does say on their website:
    0_1458603003013_upload-088a0883-2f7f-44ca-a06d-4204c6006b36

    @RaceProUK Dapper Drake? Trusty Thar? Unicycle Unicorn? Ravaging Racoon? Ubuntu is not a rolling distro, version number would be nice.

    Silly cloud providers with their :snowflake: builds... grumble, lawn, mumble...

    Speaking of your lawn... you might want to check it, I think I saw a kid on it...

    uname doesn't know anything about distributions. What you're looking for is lsb_release -a.



  • @Onyx
    ’cat /etc/issue’ ?

    what.thedailywtf.com is on Trusty Tahr. discourse.local.lubar.me is on Xenial Xerus.


  • :belt_onion:

    @CatPlusPlus Keep forgetting about that one...

    In any case, it's 14.04 it seems... why the repos are behind is anyone's guess...
