Rocket Chat One Click Install and Reqs?

I know there are instructions on how to install Rocket chat. I will follow them but I was wondering if Digital Ocean has plans to have it as a One-Click Install

Also, for 20 users only working with rocket chat, can I run in on the 5 dollar machine?

Rocket.Chat has released their app as a 1-Click App in the DigitalOcean Marketplace. You can find it here:


Rocket.Chat recommends at least 1GB of RAM and from my experience, 1GB should be the minimum that you deploy, so that’d be the $10 Droplet.

As for installation, you can actually install the latest version with very little effort using Ubuntu. You’d deploy a Ubuntu 16.04 64bit Droplet, run a few commands from the CLI, and you’ll be up and running in no time.

For example, on a fresh Droplet (you can copy and paste this to the CLI):

sudo apt-get update \
&& sudo apt-get -y upgrade \
&& sudo snap install rocketchat-server

And then follow any on-screen prompts.
