These are website assets for the DurHack hackathon (the third one as of writeup on this readme).
Hopefully, it should be as trivial as cloning the repo,
cding into the repository, and slapping the following commands into the terminal (assuming
node.js is installed):
npm install node index.js
Presently, we've used a Digital Ocean box which is covered through the Github Student Pack.
pm2 is used to run the service as a daemon, with
nginx acting as a reverse proxy. SSL certificates were created using Let's Encrypt (A good tutorial on how to do this yourself can be found here.) Optionally, there are lots of open source scripts that will act as a git webhook, allowing changes to be deployed as soon as changes are pushed into your repo (similar to how Heroku works), but I'm not sensible enough to allow that to be deployed.
blah blah blah ok w/e but can I use this for my own hackathon website?
Sure, but obviously don't use our logo and colourscheme or whatever. That'll be silly.
is this a ruse?
