Has anybody managed to get the local cloud setup with a Photon with any degree of reliability?


It appears that Particle abandoned updating its local cloud server about three years ago: https://github.com/particle-iot/spark-server

There is a fork that was last updated about a month ago here: https://github.com/Brewskey/spark-server

The code has been cleaned up and organized quite a bit, but it still doesn’t seem to work very well. Has anyone gotten this thing to work? What combination of OS, Node, and spark-server did you use?
I’m running on Raspberrian Jessie, the latest Brewskey spark-server, the latest particle-cli, and the latest spark firmware, origin/release/v0.8.0-rc.8 My symptoms are, no matter what combination of keys doctor, keys server, and setup I use, I never get past the rapid cyan flash.
I can connect to local wifi fine, and the keys I’ve generated show up the spark-servers database, but the Photon will not connect to the local cloud.


Let me ping someone that might be able to help, @rickkas7 or @ParticleD are you able to assist?
