Installing holla (ruby)

software development

#1

I just found this chat application: https://github.com/maccman/holla
and would like to install it. But the problem is, I have no clue how to use ruby!

If anyone could give me some tips on how to do this it will be greatly appreciated!

I’ve been looking over the requirements for that application and I do not believe you will be able to use it if you are on shared hosting. It requires use of something called Juggernaut which utilizes node.js which is a server application. You cannot have persistent processes on shared servers. If you are on vps that is a different story.

That being said I can’t give you instructions since I don’t happen to be on vps so can’t try installing it myself >.>
