When gargron said he didn't have analytics on his blog, multiple people said 'grep access_log' & I think that says something good about the technical community here on mastodon: we're not afraid to do things the easy way. A lot of devs feel like if one part of a project uses web tech the whole thing should, even when it makes the project borderline unmanagable, & this is how we get 3rd party trackers & giant CMSes.
On the last day of 2018, I figured out how to:
- Run multiple apps as different users with `adduser --disabled-login $USER`.
- Get them to start on boot with a systemd `.service` file.
- Reverse proxy everything behind nginx and proper `sites-enabled` files.
(all inspired by the excellent mastodon installation guide)
