One thing I really dig in IPB is the Status update hook. Example:
Is there anything similar for nodeBB? Perhaps I'm not searching the right terms for plugins.
Relatedly, things that are plugin-dependent (such as status, polls, ... even forum sigs? PMs?... etc) -- how does this translate over in a migration? I notice that the only existing IPB->nodeBB converter works only for an old version of node, which seems like a bit of a hassle, especially as it might require tracking down old versions of everything else (mongo, nodeJS) to install with it.
I'm contemplating the idea of switching over from IPB to node, but at first glance it looks like it'd be a cumbersome process. If anyone has any insights to share, I'd appreciate them! I'm especially concerned about how much would be lost in the crossover.
@Bri Yes there are solutions like Microsoft's vcpkg or even cppan.
But my tool would be more like a deployment complement: you would generate your binaries for the end user to download them but also an amalgamated version in case they want to use the quick n easy way.
One thing I'd like to setup if this happens to be successful would be a cloud service which would allow to easily amalgamate your project.
@julian And where is /auth/yourplugin/callback handled? Because in the case of nodebb-plugin-sso-oauth it takes to the homepage of the forum. But i want to change that behaviour and i don't know where or how.
Looks like your connection to NodeBB was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
