Stable Pleroma-fe not working on FreeBSD but develop does

I spent three days trying to get the Akkoma with pleroma-fe in FreeBSD 13.1.
Unfortunately the front end only showed up when I install the pleroma-fe with the --develop arg.

Stable Pleroma-FE is working perfectly on FreeBSD with the latest stable Akkoma release. If you’ve installed Akkoma from the latest git commits, you need to use the develop branch as there have been some breaking changes

Ah, that makes sense.
Didn’t realise the FreeBSD install guide actually pulling the development branch by default.

Is it possible to revert to --stable branch from --development?

I think you could try this (but make a backup first!):

git pull
git checkout $(git tag -l | grep -v 'rc[0-9]*$' | sort -V | tail -n 1)
MIX_ENV=prod mix deps.get
MIX_ENV=prod mix compile
MIX_ENV=prod mix ecto.migrate
MIX_ENV=prod mix pleroma.frontend install pleroma-fe --ref stable

This should work as long as the dev branch didn’t perform breaking database changes (I don’t know if it did…).

I’ve tried it but I’m using Mangane FE on that instance.
