Great job on the launch of the Small Technology foundation and related products.
An old friend of mine saw @aral talk at UX Australia and was impressed.
My main takeaways;
If you have a Mac use homebrew. Part one was mainly my own refusal to do that - wrong idea.
The sync using rsync doesn’t seem to work from a Mac
My server is CentOS 6 and I found out that I can’t install Site.js due to gdlib
Having said all that I think with some minor tweaks to the installation instructions, mentioned in the blog posts, it is in fact very easy to get up and running with what is a complex thing using Site.js I know it’s the foundation of the other tech and is very exciting. I am gutted I can’t run it on centos6 to be fair, but my use at the moment does mitigate the time for me to upgrade my VPS to centos7 or build docker instances at this time.
However hopefully one click installs on servers would make it really really easy as you would only need to set up on your computer and point to remote and just sync (in theory)
