Where did the GitHub Issues go? Due to a bit of neglect on my part and an abundance of support questions coming to this repository as GitHub issues I have taken the decision to close all issues. I don't have time to go through each issue individually. If your issue has been closed and it's not a support request and you still think it is relevant, please comment and I'll review.
Future plans I'm hoping to do a bit more work on Staytus soon. One of the main things I want to achieve will be to provide Staytus as a container rather than requiring people to install it manually on servers which seems to be cause of a number of issues. Once this is complete, I'll update all docs to make it clear now to deploy Staytus either using Docker or onto a Kubernetes cluster if that's what you prefer.
Staytus is a complete solution for publishing the latest information about any issues with your web applications, networks or services. Along with absolutely beautiful public & admin interfaces, Staytus is a powerful tool for any organization with customers that rely on them to be online 24/7.

Alternativly, these basic instructions will get you up and running:
Before start, you'll need to create a new MySQL database:
mysql$ CREATE DATABASE `staytus` CHARSET utf8 COLLATE utf8_unicode_ci; mysql$ GRANT ALL ON staytus.* TO `staytus`@`localhost` IDENTIFIED BY "a_secure_password";
$ git clone https://github.com/adamcooke/staytus $ cd staytus $ git checkout stable $ bundle install --deployment --without development:test $ cp config/database.example.yml config/database.yml $ nano -w config/database.yml # Add your database configuration $ bundle exec rake staytus:build staytus:install $ procodile start --foreground
In case the
bundle install command fails at
mysql2, make sure that you have the MySQL development package (ie.
mysql on macOS,
libmariadb-dev for MariaDB on Linux)
This will run the application on HTTP port 5000. When you first login, you'll be able to add your own site settings. Browse to http://[IP]:8787 to begin.
You may also want to change the SMTP configuration via environment variables,
which are described in
To run staytus in the background, simply run

Once you've installed Staytus, you can easily upgrade it by following this process.
$ cd path/to/staytus $ git pull origin stable $ bundle $ bundle exec rake staytus:build staytus:upgrade
Once you've done this, you should ensure you restart any Staytus processes which you have running.
All e-mail notifications are sent through a background worker process. This will be started automatically when you run the application using
foreman start. If you don't do this, you can run jobs using
bundle exec rake jobs:work.
To log in for the first time, visit the
/admin, and log in with email

password. You will probably want to go to
Settings -> Users and set up your admins.
All themes are stored in the
content/themes directory. You can
add your own themes in this directory but we do not recommend
making changes to the
default theme as these changes may get
overridden in an upgrade.
Full details about how to make these will be coming soon.
Examples in the wild
If you're running Staytus in the wild, let us know so we can add you to the list.
