Polisy install Node Server via SSH


Recommended Posts

Are there  detailed instructions on installing a node server from a git repo via SSH to the Polisy? 

I have cloned a fork of the Notification NS to /var/polyglot/nodeservers and have run install.sh.  The Node server appears in Register New Node Server and can be added but will never start.

I had to figure this out to install a custom lifx and the Pentair pool node server that is not in the store

this quote from XKing should get u going


Sure, become polyglot user first (it will ask for admin's password)

sudo -u polyglot -s


mkdir ~/lifxtest
cd ~/lifxtest
git clone https://github.com/exking/lifxlan.git

Thanks guys,

I was able to change the user of the dir to polyglot from root which allowed the node server to run.  I am still having a few issues, but the NS is running which should allow me to locate any other problems. 

One other question: Is it safe to delete the directories in the polyglot/nodeserver for a NS which I am not using?
