Airtable API – Testing while installing / Ayda

Using a platform with Ruby 2.5

sudo apt-get install nodejs

sudo apt-get install npm

If you have an error when trying to git clone (gnutls_handshake() failed: Public key signature verification has failed.) you may do:

sudo apt-get remove –purge libgnutls-deb0-28

sudo npm install airtable

+ airtable@0.5.9 yeah

export $AIRTABLE_BASE_ID=yourid

export AIRTABLE_API_KEY=yourkey


Install Full Web platform on VPS + SSL (debian jessie 8) (03-2019) – Documentation while installing / Ayda

Firewall settings for VNC or other service:

sudo iptables -A INPUT -m state –state NEW -m tcp -p tcp –dport 80 -j ACCEPT

First, you will try to do it on Jessie 8 – But it wont work, and you will try :

to install the ruby ppa.

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:brightbox/ruby-ng
sudo apt-get update

if you did it then you must delete the created file in /etc/apt/sources.list.d

If you were not able to install the cmd apt-add-repository so you will try:

sudo apt-get install software-properties-common

Anyway, Ruby ver is limited to 2.1 on jessie. So you will want to upgrade to latest debian distrib (buster, 2019)

you must edit sources.list and after that update/upgrade/dist-upgrade

deb buster main 
deb buster-updates main
deb buster/updates main

now install ruby-full package so you are no longer limited to 2.1

sudo apt-get install ruby-full

ayda@vps663660:~$ ruby -v

ruby 2.5.3p105 (2018-10-18 revision 65156) [x86_64-linux-gnu]
