## Configuration
If you want to change port on which application is running, set `PORT`
environment variable (4000 is default).
Configuration is done via environment variables:

If your application is hosted not on localhost, you should change
`BASE_URL` environment variable to `http://` or `https://` + your domain
(e.g. `https://somesite.dev`)
- `PORT` - change port on which application is running (default: 4000)
- `BASE_URL` - base URL for permalinks, no trailing slash (default: `http://localhost:4000`)
- `TEMPLATE_ROOT` - where templates are located (default: `./templates`)
- `STATIC_ROOT` - where static files are located (default: `./static`)

export BASE_URL=https://somesite.dev
export PORT=80 # Note: you might need to run gobin as root

export TEMPLATE_ROOT=/usr/share/gobin/templates
export STATIC_ROOT=/usr/share/gobin/static

sudo mkdir -p /usr/share/gobin
sudo cp -r templates static /usr/share/gobin

# Add SystemD unit
sudo cp -r ./contrib/systemd/gobin.service ./contrib/systemd/gobin.service.d /etc/systemd/system

# Edit /etc/systemd/system/gobin.service.d/environment.conf to set environment variables

# Install gobin itself
sudo install ./gobin /usr/local/bin

# Reload units and start gobin
