December 2018: Can the Mobile Apps Work on Self Hosted Instances? (Read on Please)

I work for a school that is considering self hosting Canvas on AWS because the cloud hosted version is far too expensive for our budgeting. 


A year ago when I looked into "mobile integration" the list at FAQ · instructure/canvas-lms Wiki · GitHub listed Mobile Integration as a difference. At present it does not (as you can see).


This leads me to believe that the apps can be made to work with self-hosted versions with some minor tweaking (as they are also provided open source). I found a GitHub page about 6 months ago that said it was indeed possible and had some basic instructions for getting it to work. That page has since been taken down.


Can anyone who self-hosts confirm or deny that the mobile apps can be made to work? Have you done it? Am I hoping in vain?


Any contribution is appreciated.
