I'd like to see web hosting look much more like installing an app on an iPhone.

This is at the end of Ben Werdmuller’s response to Giles Turnbull’s Let’s make the IndieWeb easier.

I couldn’t agree more. This is part of the deep dive I’ve been doing on Cloudron and similar Bring Your Own Server management systems.

More generally, I’ve been concerned with the practices of open source software builders. There is very little Design for Deployment that makes it easier for less technical users to self host.

I think open app stack packaging formats like Buildpacks is a good direction.
