• I had some ideas for NodeBB that I wanted to try and develop. Are there any architecture notes? Any pull requests/issues or comments that dive into how everything works together?

    Thanks!

  • This requires investment. If the nodebb team had found investors for at least 10 million, the discourse would have fainted


  • @volanar I'm not sure I follow. It seems to be that having notes for how everything works would make development and contribution easier.

    @nbb123 Hey there! Best bet would be to take a look at our documentation, especially the "development" section — on how to write plugins/themes/etc.

    What exactly are you trying to accomplish? All of the NodeBB team are on the forum, and can answer any technical questions you may have 🙂

    @volanar That may be true, but we're a different kind of company than those silicon valley startups that raise money. This is not to say that they're bad and we're good — just that we're different in how we approach money.

    They certainly can use that money to do cool things, but at a burn rate that far exceeds ours. We hit profitability organically, by growing our revenue through our SaaS offering and by taking on custom work.

    I like to think we do cool things too, but the downside is I don't have unlimited funds to throw talented developers at every problem that strikes my fancy 🙂

    Maybe someday!

    Unfettered indulgement of fancies tends to lead to gluttonous behavior and feature bloat. The
    "Unix Way" versus the "MS Monolith" approach. Got to take the best from each pray you hit the sweet spot. 👍 🐕

    Otherwise.. Not.... 👿
