Installing Misskey on RaspberryPi3 B not working

Hardware: Raspberry Pi 3 B at home
YunoHost version: 11.0.9
access : SSH and webadmin
**Install directly from image provided by yunohost (64bit)
**Yunohost self-diagnosis: all fine, apart rspamd not working (wanted to check that out later)

I want to install Misskey on my self-hosted RP3 at home.
However, when installing, it aborts when building the app.
The logfile reports
Ineffective mark-compacts near heap limit Allocation failed - JavaScript heap out of memory
I found that topic in another thread in the forum, saying that there is too little memory. In the case of that other thread, it was a virtual machine and was solved by allocating more memory to it. But this is not an option in the case of a Raspi, I believe.
What can I do to make it work on a RaspberryPi? Or is it just too limited hardware?

Thank you very much for your help!


Misskey is a little bit heavy. And the installation requires a lot of memory. Try to add swap file at least 4G on hdd (avoid to add it on sdcard) and be aware that the installation will take a long time.

thank you so much for the advise!
just to make sure - I need an USB-harddrive to connect to the rp3, which is then used as swap drive?
and I remove that part after installation?
