After several trials in various operating systems with a different way of installation procedures, finally, I was able to install Forem in my local machine.
Linux + Docker combination is a hassle-free installation.
Windows with WSL with the documentation is also pretty good.
Mac + Docker is easy peasy.
Now I have a local instance, but pushing it to Heroku is not an easy task; I was encountering a lot of errors.
So I decided to look over the complete documentation of Forem before pushing it to Heroku. During this process, I learned a lot about rails and foreman and found some interesting points which might have a reason for the failure of production Forem instance.
- Almost all env variables are essential.
- Addons like Redis, ElasticSearch, Postgres are crucial.
Noting these developments, I restarted my trials to push my development local instance to Heroku for a production instance but failed 😑.
I am not a developer and not sure what I am missing here, and if anyone can suggest to me how to proceed to the next phase, please guide me through it.
