Over the weekend, I wanted to hack on WriteFreely (which I did), but didn’t want to install all of its dependencies onto my desktop. I used multipass to create a development VM, and I’ve documented the process on my blog in a way that should hopefully be easy to follow. (If you’re on the fediverse and want to share it, please consider boosting/sharing my toot about it.)
Please let me know if you run into any problems, and I’ll see if I can help out (and/or update the guide!).
