Online poker forum using NodeBB

General Discussion
  • Yeah, that's my question. I think NodeBB has a ton of potential for the future.

    I am the admin of a private small online poker forum based on Simple Machines (SMF) software.

    I would love to move to NodeBB but I have some issues.

    First of all, we need to post hand histories on the forums.

    Sites like don't offer output format NodeBB, obviously.

    I am not a coder, so that sucks.

    Also, I'm not sure where to host this.

    What do you guys think? Any players in da house? 😄

  • Nice! What dies a service like the hand converter do? What does it convert from?

  • It converts poker hand histories (text exported from poker tracking software, ie Holdem Manager, Poker Tracker) to a readable format for phpbb, html, etc so that it shows diamonds, clubs, spades, hearts and other info players need to review a hand and give feedback. For instance, instead of showing Ad (Ace of diamonds) it shows an A and replaces 'd' with a small diamond image.


    This is how a hand looks on nodebb:

  • Looks like this can be done as a plugin which would take the content and replace all the special tags and stuff with their images. nodebb-plugin-poker 😛

  • Was about to suggest that. A plugin would be perfect for this, no website translation step required.

  • Sounds good. I wish I knew how to create a plugin like that..
