Run Metabase without using JAR


#1

Hi everyone.

Has anyone tried or successfully got Metabase running without the use of the JAR?

Having it all packaged in the JAR is fine for ease of install but for a production deployment we’d like to try and run it natively with our own web servers instead of the error prone and not particularly scalable Jetty web server. As far as I can tell Metabase is basically a Nodejs backend with a javascript frontend - so this should be doable - right?

We’re also seeing a lot of the dreaded “can’t allocate thread” errors and other crashes with no error output and I think a lot of these may be in part due to the Jetty service. But running it without Jetty would probably be much easier to then diagnose other potential sources of issues.

Thanks in advance.
