Local Dev Environment Not Working

Hello, I've followed your instructions to get my local dev environment running, and it runs but then exits immediately. Checking the logs doesn't show me an error (that I can see) but it's like it shuts itself down immediately.

Here is the console output:

> Blot@0.0.0 local
> NODE_PATH=app node app/local

Local server capabilities:
- twitter embeds false
- markdown with pandoc  false
- .docx conversion  false
- .odt conversion  false
- dropbox client false
- persistent dashboard sessions  false

Unfortunately I'm not going to provide support for running Blot in a local dev environment at this point – the guides and the code base will eventually be polished and I'll be in a better position to help debug this sort of problem. I hope you can understand that maintaining Blot for the long-term involves making decisions about where to allocate a finite amount of development time.

For what it's worth: I had a look through the output and whatever is going wrong is not obvious to me, unfortunately.

Totally understandable - was hoping you saw something obvious. Thanks for taking a look! When I find the answer, I'll post it here to hopefully help out someone else with the same issue.

I tried a couple different methods of installing node - and even thought maybe my Apple Silicon notebook was the issue and tried it on an older MacBook - no dice. If other users figure this out, please post here.
