Just wanted to show how I use Archi on my chromebook from a web browser.

Supported browser: Chrome 49, Firefox 44, Safari 11, Opera 36, IE 11, Edge 12

Steps:

  • Install docker using instructions for your OS from this link: https://docs.docker.com/engine/install/
  • Run this command using your terminal client: docker run -d -p 8080:8080 deployview/archi:ubuntu1910
  • Open http://localhost:8080 on a supported browser. If you are deploying this container remotely, for example in a VM on your homelab, use the ip address of the machine e.g http://192.168.1.99:8080

Appologies just incase this has been previously discussed.

Thanks for sharing!

Does Archi run quite slowly like this?

I'd say there is about 5% performance hit. Avoids the UI issues I have with sommelier and the hidpi display.

Another use case, for me personally, is being able to continue my work on any device with a browser when I'm working from home and bored of being caged in the study. Deployed to a box in my homelab I model in the living room on the 4k tv using my rpi4 device and at night using my samsung tab.

A very niche use case I might add.
