Newebe + Pagekite

By echorand 2012-02-20, 17:38

Newebe is a distributed social network based on the idea that all your data remains on a data storage device you own and control - for example, your laptop's hard-disk. Let's see how you can get started.

Installing Newebe

The installation guide is pretty much all you need to get started with newebe. Once you have completed the steps, visit http://127.0.0.1:8000 in your browser and you should see the Newebe screen asking you to register, etc.

Your Public face

If you are a Pagekite user, you will know what Pagekite can do for you. Go ahead and create a domain/sub-domain for yourself on your Pagekite account, and on your local computer, simply do: pagekite.py 8000 <kitename>.pagekite.me, where <kitename> is your kite name - top-level or sub-domain. For eg, mine was <http://newebe.echorand.pagekite.me/> (Note that this link may not work when you click!). And you are flying high!

What next?
