Self host lib-jitsi-meet

I would like to create a custom GUI for Jitsi using my own deployment of the Jitsi meet API (lib-jitsi-meet), basically doing everything on my own machines. Initially, I was using the API Jitsi provided to create a meeting in which the participants are arranged in a circle around the screen, but that service is no longer offered for free, so I’d like to host it myself.

The lib-jitsi-meet Github repository has been cloned, and I would appreciate any tips on how to get it connected to replace going through the jitsi servers. Please note, I’m not trying to embed Jitsi into a website or app, but rather have a custom GUI for a straight Jitsi meeting, which is why I’m using the API.

Thanks in advance for any assistance.
