Bonjour à tous,
I’ve recently discovered Outline wiki tool.
It’s a very nice and fast knowledge base software, open source, that aims at competing with confluence. The design is super elegant and fast, the features are rather simple but very efficient.
The owner of that app uses a SaaS model to fund his project : getoutline.com.
That’s maybe part of why that app is quite difficult to install and that there is not much support or documentation if you want or need to self-host it.
This is why I decided to set myself the challenge of packaging it for Yunohost. I have it running right now in a dedicated VPS within a docker image, but I can’t wait to have it running on my personal server ! This is my first packaging tentative, hence this post where I’ll give you updates about my progress (lots of stuff to learn) and hopefully get a little help from the pro packagers !
First usable version is now ready
You can go to that url and follow the Readme
Please don’t install this on a productiion server !
Don’t hesitate to fill in issues on Github or make some feedback here, I’ll be very interested.
Emails are still not working, but otherwise you’ll end up with a pretty usable version.
- Use Passport.js’ LDAP plugin to connect Yunohost’s SSO to Outline’s identification system
- (if possible) Have the app added to Yunohost official catalog
Any help from you guys would be very welcomed !
Anyway I’m very excited and am sure I’ll learn a lot by trying building my first package
