Why chia node start 's UX is terrible for server-targeted deployments


To provide an easy way for a simple user to start and manage the node, Chia has chosen to use the background daemon approach built up based on multiple components, combining into what they call Chia Blockchain (chia-blockchain on GitHub) .

This is a really decent approach for newbies and generally the users who are running the nodes on their desktop machines. On paper, it should be easier to manage for servers with it, as the software itself is handling background runtime. But in fact, it is not.
