@yunohost is amazing because it greatly simplifies the process of self hosting for less technical users... without it I was never able to do it. There goal is to empower as many people as possible to host their own stuff by removing the barrier to entry:) Take a look at the amazing list of apps already available...simple one click installs amazing! Yunohost can run on a VPS, an old pc, or even a raspberrypi. https://yunohost.org/en/apps
@lps @yunohost yeah I've read their website. I was thinking about making use of those one-click deploy things long ago, because there certainly are hosting providers that have VDS's with support for these. DigitalOcean in particular certainly does have something like that.
I'll consider supporting this in the future.
@lps @yunohost indeed. Though there is the concern of reliability then — if something breaks for a non-technical user, they'll have no idea how to fix it. I don't think reliability is there yet for Smithereen. It needs more testing before I can be certain it's reliable enough to let non-technical users install it with peace of mind.
