Any one tried to host discourse (http://www.discourse.org/) on a raspberry pi? Or is there any issue that cannot be solved on a pie?
You can probably do it, given that Discourse is just a Ruby on Rails application. It will run slowly, given that Rails, Redis, and Postgres will all be sharing the limited processing power and RAM, but it should work.
No currently you cannot host discourse on Raspberry Pi 2
Install Ubuntu OK
Install Swapfile OK
Install Docker FAIL
- Error: you are not using a 64bit platform. Docker currently only supports 64bit platforms.
ARMV7 is 32 bit
The ARM cloud provider Scaleway adopted the building scripts to run Discourse on their platform. You do not need docker to run Discourse, however, there are some dependencies on x86/64-only libraries. Scaleway got around these issues by monkey-patching.
To install discourse, one has to follow the now unsupported installation guide for ubuntu: https://github.com/discourse/discourse/blob/master/docs/INSTALL-ubuntu.md
It is my understanding that Discourse requires 1GB of memory to compile all the prerequisites, so it's unlikely to run on the Pi. This is according to the following Guide, Installing Discourse on Ubuntu.
You can probably run it by following guide.
I'm trying to do so, and facing a problem of installing
libv8) gem on
armv7l. If it can be solved, I don't see any other problems with running Discourse on a Raspberry Pi.
