This is the server backend for showterm.

It's hopefully available on the internet at

Private server

If you'd like to run your own showterm server it should "just work". For small installations you can use the builtin server that comes with rails in a few easy steps:

  1. git clone
  2. Set up a database (I've only tested postgres), and add a config/database.yml
  3. bundle install
  4. create a database.yml file in the config directory
  5. bundle exec rake db:create db:migrate db:seed
  6. rails s

You'll also need to configure your user's showterm clients by adding export SHOWTERM_SERVER to their ~/.bashrcs.
