Hardware requirements

  • A Raspberry Pi or $5 Digital Ocean Droplet is more than enough to get you started. Some even use 64MB RAM Docker CaaS.
  • 2 CPU cores and 512MB RAM would be the baseline for teamwork.
  • Increase CPU cores when your team size gets significantly larger, memory footprint remains low.

Browser support

  • Please see Semantic UI for specific versions of supported browsers.
  • The smallest resolution officially supported is 1024*768, however the UI may still look right in smaller resolutions, but no promises or fixes.
