With Diaspora you can:

Quick Start:

Here's how you can get a development environment up and running. This is where any new pod runner should start, as well as people looking to contribute to D*. This script assumes you have a basic Rails setup installed.

Step 1: Run the script and follow the on screen instructions.

  bash <(curl https://raw.github.com/diaspora/diaspora/master/script/install.sh)

Step 2: Run the development server

  rails s

then visit 'http://localhost:3000' in your browser.

Step 3 (for developers): Run tests


Step 4 (for everyone): Party.

Want a production setup? Having trouble with install script? Want to install D* the slow way?

Look to more specific install guides here.
