I agree with this point. After exploring this for hours, arrived to the same conclusion. There is a lot of miss information about how to deploy and manage/update Discourse.
At the moment I’ve found:
- The current thread with a tutorial (not updated)
- An Image with Discourse 1.2.3 (which is an old beta)
I think it’s valuable the idea of patching Discourse to run on ARM, but it’s confusing how to actually mantain it.
Another interesting opition is this: https://github.com/jamielinux/ansible-discourse
But needs the patches for Arm. I’m thinking on adapt this Ansible-Discourse install to include the required patches. Why this this important? The owner is updating it to reflect latest optimizations based on the original Discourse Docker image. Will come back to this later with a working example. Tks!
