Installing Soapbox via YunoHost

If you want to install Soapbox to a Pleroma instance installed using YunoHost, you can do so by following these steps.

1. Download the build

First, download the latest build of Soapbox from GitLab.

curl -L https://gitlab.com/soapbox-pub/soapbox/-/jobs/artifacts/v1.3.0/download?job=build-production -o soapbox-fe.zip

2. Unzip the build

Then, unzip the build to the Pleroma directory under YunoHost's directory:

busybox unzip soapbox-fe.zip -o -d /home/yunohost.app/pleroma/

That's it! 🎉 Soapbox is installed. The change will take effect immediately, just refresh your browser tab. It's not necessary to restart the Pleroma service.
