I welcome people trying this out in the single user mode for now, while Holochain gets lib3h finished; multiuser worked before and will work again soon. Hopefully this should be very easy to setup with the provided Makefile and the README instructions.
The UI is entirely Rust as well as the zome, and this is something I want to keep enhancing too. I am currently starting work on an experimental clone of the Gab Social UI, since that has also been made open source. You can follow that progress on the
gabbycat branch, which will also be configured to run on Vagrant and Virtualbox, so if you have those installed just type
make vm-start-gabbycat and you’ll be able to access it on port 8000 once it builds itself.
