Get Discourse running on localhost on Chromebook


#1

Hello! I have a Chromebook and would like to get Discourse running on a localhost server for testing purposes but have no idea how to do this on Chromebook. Any help?

Here is how I think that would work: First, you’d need to understand very well how to install on Linux. Then, if you were really good, in 5-40 hours you might figure it out. And then you’d find that it didn’t work well enough to be useful. It could be really fun though.

If what you want is to try out discourse, given that you can get a credit card, you can have it on digital ocean for $5/month or a few cents a day.

Alright, sounds good! I have an Ubuntu so i’ll see if I can get it working on there. Thanks!
