Request: Rocket Chat

Post by juliuscaesar »

It would be very nice to have my own chat server working!

Rocket Chat works more or less like Slack, take a look! https://rocket.chat/

Oh wow...that looks pretty cool!!!!

Looks like it's pretty easy and straight forward on manually installing

Hello everyone,

Has anyone installed it successfully?
I am looking for a tool like that one and would love to get it on my RPi 3 B.

Cheers

Hi,

you could try following official Rocket Chat installation guide for Debian based systems.
https://docs.rocket.chat/installation/m ... ion/debian

But it seems a little bit outdated as it's pointing to Debian Stretch (current version is Buster) and MongoDB 4.0 (current version is 4.4)
http://repo.mongodb.org/apt/debian/dist ... b-org/4.4/
Pls let us know if a solution is working. This could help others if they hit by similar situation. Your DietPi Team

Mongo DB manual install shows the 4.4

Actually it appears using the ubuntu install might be easier
https://docs.rocket.chat/installation/m ... ion/ubuntu just skip the repository file part at the very beginning

Does dietpi support snap?
Because if it does this might be the best way to install

Mainly because if it does...it allows for a HUGE number of applications and whatnot to be side loaded with a very simple command

We also have this request in GitHub: https://github.com/MichaIng/DietPi/issues/1902
But I will not find time soon to implement, maybe someone else does? https://github.com/MichaIng/DietPi/wiki ... ware-title

Hi,

For info, I installed snap and Rocket.chat on my RPi 3B. Due to the performances of such hardware, there is a limitation which only allows to install an older version but it works. Perfect for my needs anyway (10 persons, chat and file exchanges, mainly audio as it is for a music group).
I am far from expert and succeeded to I guess anyone can do it.
I also installed caddy as a reverse-proxy to reach it and got a free no-ip domain.

Very cool...was it very difficult to install by the above howto?

Glad you got it working...as with any SBC...it's not a mega powerhouse, so expect 25% of normal "server" level capabilities when running it from a RPi, unless it's already a low resource server program
