I have an app that works fine with Realm currently; I’ve got the ROS 2.0.18 running on an AWS EC2 instance, which started with a “blank” Ubuntu AMI onto which I installed/started ROS using, I believe,
curl -s https://raw.githubusercontent.com/realm/realm-object-server/master/install.sh | bash. It’s possible I started it with
npm install -g realm-object-server; however I’m pretty positive I’ve never typed
ros init, or any versions of
ros init my-app, at any point in any process.
I’m preparing to integrate Google Authentication, and the ROS documentation says "To include the Google provider, create a Realm Object Server project via
ros init" and then has some code.
I imagine this means I need to SSH into my server (which is already up and running for ROS) and enter
ros init. And then put the code from the documentation in the window that I imagine will pop up.
But I don’t really know anything about
ros init or what an ros project actually is (or node or anything like that for that matter), so I’m a little trepidatious, and these questions come up:
ros initmess anything up that’s currently on my server? Does it “initialize” or reset anything?
- Assuming the answer to #1 is “no”, what do I do once I’ve pasted the code into this file (assuming I’m correct about what to do wit the code)? Do I need to make my app or my ROS instance aware of it somehow?
- Anything else I’m missing?
