So that forum?

So that forum I mentioned? I've setup a test-installation at:

What does this forum offer? A cross between hacker news and reddit. If the admin of the forums enables it you can create arbitrary tags, and then view them. For example:

  • http://example.com/view/tag-name

It's also very fast, and reasonably easy to customize. Which is good, because the current layout is nasty.

Things I like:

  • Everything is stored in Redis.
  • The code is made of simple primitives which are joined together in a web-application. Which means most of the logic is outside the core.
  • The templates are pretty basic, which means a real designer can do good things.

Not much more to say really; except I've setup a test install and if you wish to login/register and post spam feel free.
