@johnsonjohnson said in Which is better NodeBB or Discourse?:
@gotwf's claim that Ruby on Rails is somehow history is absolute nonsense. So is the claim that it's somehow hard to customize and scale.
Most people who make such claims have no idea what Rails actually is. They've never used it, or at least never developed anything substantial with it. In addition they've often spent most of their lives learning something else and is therefore reluctant to vouch for anything new regardless of what it is.

Rails vs. NodeJS: Are you kidding? Was an early adopter of Rails back, circa 2003/4 or so? It rocked at that time as an alternative to then php stuff sporting the serious security hole of the day/week. Or so it seemed - php was pretty sketchy for a while there. Fast forward a decade and a half and it's freakin' no contest! Rails is all but history/legacy, at least in my mind.
Pretty sure I was using RAILS before most people hereabouts. Used to own the first edition of "the pick axe book" before some asshat "borrowed" it from my cube and never returned. That was copyrighted 2004 and I'd been using ROR for at least several months prior. It was a dandy alternative to the php security hole of the week. Fast forward to more modern times and I'd prefer to use else. But then I have also not used ROR in a decade so.... my impression may well be outdated.
But whatever. The above was an opinion. Your mileage may vary.
But it is cool that you feel passionate enough about ROR to create an account to post a rebuttal to something I posted nearly a year prior. So, @johnsonjohnson, welcome to NodeBB. You've tried the rest and found the best (TM)
P.S.; Even recounting that history has me pissed off again because they also stole my first edition copy of "The Pragmatic Programmer". Never replaced either. Fsck'ing hate thieves.
It's been several months since our Toronto team has convened in our downtown office, and we've blogged previously about how we are spending our free time during social distancing. But of course that DOES NOT mean the team hasn't been working hard. Version 1.14.0 includes expanded documentation and improved features, as well as streamlining and security fixes. Here are some highlights...

Your don't need the header in your template. You need to add it like this:
router.get('/calendar', middleware.buildHeader, renderPageHandler);
It should cache for an hour, I think (based on a quick look at nodebb package manager code). So yes - you have to wait a bit before the nbbpm refreshes. You can just install the updated version manually by using npm install <package name> from the command line in NodeBB folder.
@julian No worries. It's just slightly alarming upgrading a production instance only to find out you've accidentally gone all the way to a pre-release. We've only recently taken over our current NodeBB forum from someone else and I'm not familiar with the workflow yet.
I've made a note in our internal docs so it doesn't happen again. I was just wondering if I'd mis-read the docs or if that was the intended workflow.
Oh, hi! Are you asking because we've started cutting pre-releases?
The pre-releases are marked in such a way that it should be easy (well, easier to distinguish)... they have an orange label in GitHub, and they always have a dash in the version number.
For example, while v1.13.4 is not out yet, v1.13.4-0, v1.13.4-1, v1.13.4-2, and v1.13.4-3 are, but they are all pre-releases and can be ignored.
If you're being notified via email from GitHub, it will also contain the word "Pre-release" in the title, and so you can ignore it: [NodeBB/NodeBB] Pre-release v1.13.4-3 - v1.13.4-3
Hope that helps!
Which is the simplest way to get 'isSection' and 'link' properties of categories to render 'account/categories' pages ? I need them for my account/categories.tpl template.
Thanks in advance for help !
Still could use assistance if anyone can offer. The new forums we are developing using nodebb is delayed until the next release, but if someone cant point me in the right direction I would highly appreciate it.
@Casey-Chen-Lai You'll want to translate to zh-TW, which is our traditional chinese variant.
Don't ask me why it's TW and not HK.
zh-TW is available for translation in Transifex, let me know if you run into additional issues

@scottalanmiller it sounded like he was referring to a 3rd party proxy.
Oh, I see. A very specific proxy for which the site is not configured.
