Running abra on the server

Why?

If you're on an environment where it's hard to run Docker, or command-line programs in general, you might want to install abra on a server instead of your local computer.

To install abra on a different server than you'll be hosting your apps, just follow getting started guide as normal.

If you want to install abra on the same server, there's one change.

Instead of providing your SSH connection details when you run abra server add ..., just use default:

abra server add default

Technical details

This will tell abra to look at the Docker system running on the server, instead of a remote one.

Make sure to back up your ~/abra/ directory on the server, or put it in version control, as well as other files you'd like to.
