The AutoDapp project aims to automatically convert any existing web or mobile application into a decentralized application (DApp) by changing just a single line of code, starting with Discourse and MediaWiki. This blog post outlines a high-level approach to instantly decentralize popular applications by interposing on the SQL connection between its web server and database. With the unified effort of the open source community, we can accelerate the advent of the decentralized future for millions of users -- this is what we’re calling our “One Million” mission.
In this blog post, I'll show you how to configure a Docker-based personal server, running each service in a separate Docker container. Modern devops tools have made it easier than ever to run your own server and for anyone with basic familiarity with Linux, it's worth a try. In this tutorial, we'll use Gitlab as a running example.
