Get the source

It's time to download diaspora*! As your diaspora user run:

cd ~
git clone  https://github.com/diaspora/diaspora.git
cd diaspora

Don't miss the cd diaspora, all coming commands expect to be run from that directory!


Copy files

cp config/database.yml.example config/database.yml
cp config/diaspora.yml.example config/diaspora.yml


It's time to install the Ruby libraries required by diaspora*:

gem install bundler -v 1.12.5
bin/bundle install  --with

This takes quite a while. When it's finished, you should see a message similar to: Bundle complete! 137 Gemfile dependencies, 259 gems now installed. If that's not the case, you should seek for help on the mailing list or the IRC channel. The --jobs $(nproc) flag speeds things a bit since it enables parallel downloading. nproc shows the number of CPU cores you have available.

Running the manual gem install command shown in the error message can sometimes show a clearer error message if the bundle command fails.

Database setup

Double check your config/database.yml looks right and run:

bin/rake db:create db:schema:load

Start diaspora*
