Deploy DeadLetterLearn DeadCL
IntroductionGetting started with DeadLetter is simple, by the time you've finished you'll have setup an Author key and 'installed' our demo to test.
Everything shown in blue must be substituted with your own values.
|-||a github account: in this example we're using github but you could substitute any service or your own VPS.|
|-||a shell prompt: to run the 'installer'.|
|-||understanding of deadCL: will aid in every aspect|
Run quick installerOur first move is running the quick installer to create an Author Key.
bash <(curl -sL https://deploy.deadletter.io)
Set do-IDonce the installer starts you'll be asked to set a do-ID
This acts as the identifier for your AK. it's largely used to connect your Author Key with Conversations.
set DO-ID: STEVE-99
set [email protected]:
Add a ConversationYou can add as many as you like (or none) but our quick installer only permits one entry.
In this example we'll add a Conversation hosted on Github.
Don't forget to exclude the domain elements (which we'll set next).
add Conversation: QUICK_INSTALL/hello.txt
Set the DomainNow we'll set the domain. As we're using Github in this example we'll need to include the sub-directory and a trailing backlash.
set domain: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/deadletter/
Set your AuthoriserThe default authentication method to update your new Author Key is a HTTP basic authentication - the Authoriser set here is only used to maintain your Author Key - the default username 'deadletter'
set Author Key Authoriser: SAFE-PHRASE
You're done!All going to well you'll see the words;
Hello Author! Hello world!
posted to the endpoint in "hello.txt" assuming you've forked or changed our test Conversation of-course!
