    (Alternately, if you have node.js experience and can clear up a question about what’s talked about here [https://github.com/appdotnet/adn-comments] that would help as well. Thank you.) /longshot cc @voidfiles

      @paulkruczynski what's your question? I'm happy to try to help
      paulkruczynski
        @berg ! dang, I appreciate it. The description seems to be focused on local/self-hosted development. How applicable is it to something like a shared hosting environment? Esp. w/r/t lines like: “Make sure to add http://localhost:9000 as a redirect URI.”

          @paulkruczynski shared hosting is a little tricky, unless you can expose the node process's http server as a virtualhost somehow (that depends entirely on your situation). where do you want to run it?
          paulkruczynski
            @berg hmm, that’s what I was afraid of. Thinking either dreamhost or greenqloud (https://www.greenqloud.com)
            berg
              @paulkruczynski I don't really have any experience with either of those, but it's probably doable (easier with the latter, most likely); or I bet it'd run just fine on the Heroku free tier
              paulkruczynski
                @berg I hadn’t even thought of Heroku as an option. I’ll look into that. Thanks! You guys are the best!

                  @paulkruczynski let me know how it goes! happy to help :)

                    @voidfiles I think it got answered, but it was about deploying node.js/self-hosting this on a shared-hosting environment. The examples seem to be focused on a local dev deploy more than self-hosting
                    paulkruczynski
                      @voidfiles did you see my response? If not, the short answer was: how viable do you consider it to be to deploy this in a shared hosting environment?
                      voidfiles
                        @paulkruczynski it doesn’t need node.js to run the server component. It only needs node to compile certain assets. So, I think you could host it on a shared host.

                          @voidfiles looking at it quickly, then, would I just need the app directory? Not interested in mods/dev right now, just self-hosting
