CryptoNote is a very simple open source web application that lets users encrypt and share messages. If you'd like to see an example of the site running, go to https://cryptonote.me
Sometimes you need to send something to somebody and be sure that they're the only person reading the message. So I decided to make a simple, open source, encrypted messaging system that anybody can pull and deploy to Heroku in minutes. Don't trust me? That's cool, install your own. Don't trust your web host? That's cool, they'll never be able to read your messages.
Ensure that you have Postgres installed, preferably through the Heroku Postgres App as we use it in both production and development.
Then, open your terminal to the project folder and run:
rake db:setup rake db:migrate
Run the following commands to get started:
heroku create git push heroku master heroku run rake db:migrate
And then run:
In order to open the application.
I'm always open to pull requests, and there's a lot more that could be done with the site. In general, I will tend towards "track less", so I never want CryptoNote to have user accounts or anything like that. However, there are always cool things that can be done.
