Hope so! Seems like there's at least one other site using this port of phpbb. Perhaps more if they cleaned out the attribution footer markup or aren't indexed by google.
Source forums exporters to NodeBB, I need your DB Dump.
Compared to 0.5.0, 0.5.1has some serious optimizations everywhere. I think most of the work went into websockets, mongodb, unread and notification system.
Damn that's fast. I remember porting a forum with a tenth of those posts and it took like, half an hour or something

big thanks to @baris for some major optimization.
Oh Also, I added logic to handle mid-import crashes, so you can
resumean import now. It is still experimental, but I am targeting the NodeBB 0.5.1 or 0.5.2 release.
looks like i have a late night activity on my hands this evening
amazing job you guys are all doing
I would wait for the release, unless you're just playing with it, I am aware of a couple of bugs
Took a good 2 hours on my shitty machine, but that's the price of pagination, at least no server crashing anymore. Start the import and walk away.
Client side page might crash if you enable client side logging and you get a lot of warnings, but dont care, just refresh the page, the process is still running with or without it, but i the future ill add a feature to recover the logs on the page in case that happens.
The two hours might be a lot less if you were on this or later because each new post is parsing the content as markdown which is unnecessary.
true. I just wanted to release the importer against a stable NodeBB release, even though there was some compromise

@bentael Did you get ba chance to beat on that Drupal dump I sent ya?
@Shard not yet man, I've been busy trying to solve memory issues in the importer core. But I will very soon. in the next 2-3 weeks hopefully. so far I got these exporters to implement, Drupal is 2nd on the priority list after Wordpress
