Yes, indeed, if you're looking to scale up to handle high concurrent user loads, scaling out horizontally is your best bet. We've got a client right now serving 700+ connections at the moment, and they're on four separate NodeBB instances. It's probably too much for what they need, but it's always nice to have more capacity than needed in case of spikes, etc.
Other webapps derived from nodebb, non-forum?
Does anyone know of web apps that were built on top of nodebb?
- Q&A platform,
- a poll community for decision making,
- a ticket system,
- a publishing platform
Obviously not - 320 topic views, no reply

I'm not familiar with any. Seems like an odd thing to do.
nodebb is a wonderful place
Lack of a complete API support. Such as live stream.
I don't think Nodebb is a good choice to develop web/phone apps.
A API-first system will be more interesting in mobile phone age.

Don't we have an API https://github.com/NodeBB/nodebb-plugin-write-api/blob/master/routes/v2/readme.md ?
@kyletryon Yup! That's what I don't get.
Literally everything in the forum has an API, and streaming content is definitely included, it's literally the purpose of websockets.
Yes, it's true, almost everything in the forum has an API.
Then websockets? I don't see a websocket stream interface which client/app can get notifies, mentions.
They would get them by joining the room
