Before I ask my question, a bit of background:

I'm a php dev, with little python, and almost no nodejs knowledge. But Hypothesis is *the* thing we need, so, I had to give it a shot.

I was able to run it on my server. I didn't use docker (long story...). I installed all python modules, rabbit, made an external elasticsearch server, added nginx config based on what hypothesis' docker used, and several other things I'm forgetting to mention after a long day. Anyway, I was able to make it work, but something is missing. And it would be awesome if anybody could give me a light on what that is.

Two main problems: assets aren't loading, neither embed.js.

Maybe related to node? Maybe some python module missing? I checked everything, but my lack of xp on these two could have made me forget checking something.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!

It looks like the assets haven't been built. This normally happens as part of the Docker image build process. While it is technically possible to run a production Hypothesis environment outside of Docker, that is not something we can provide support for.
