Install from source
To install Commento from source, you need to install the developer environment first. Once you've done that, you can go ahead and build the production binaries. The rest of this tutorial assumes you have all the necessary tools installed.
Note that this option is only possible in Commento CE.
Compiling Commento CE is as simple as cloning the repository and running
$ git clone https://gitlab.com/commento/commento-ce.git $ cd commento-ce $ make prod
This would automatically build the backend, frontend, database migration steps, and the templates. The resulting binary and assets would be placed in
build/prod. There, you'll find the
commento-ce binary and the necessary assets to run Commento.
