Partly because i’m just curious if it is possible. But also, I want to actually set it up to run locally.
Eliminating Heroku as a dependency seems like it would be nice. I have plenty of things running on my home local network, so it seems like it would be nice to also host that locally.
I tried running the node app on my computer. It starts up fine, and runs, but I kept running into errors when trying to authenticate with amazon. It seems like it’s probably just a configuration issue.
I don’t to spend a ton of time trying to figure it out if it’s not designed to run outside of Heroku (I see a bunch of code detecting whether it’s running on Heroku or not, so it does appear possible, but maybe that’s just a testing mode).
I’ll keep playing around with it, I just figured I would ask.
