NodeBB SEO optimization

First of all, sorry for my very bad english and thanks for NodeBB, you did a very good job with this forum in full node, this is a beautiful alternative to phpbb and other old and crappy forums.
I'm going to install nodebb on my website, but I'm running a website with 1 million unique visitors per month and I would like to be sure that my choice is the best I could do.
Where I'm a bit worry, it's about SEO.
Everything looks fine at first (friendly url...) but I wonder if bots can easily crawl all of the content and index every "page" of this SPA forum.
Do I need to use any tool to prerender the content ?
How can I improve and optimize the SEO to get the best value of nodebb ?
Any advices or tricks ?
Thank you very much
@damien123 No additions needed, NodeBB loads the same whether you navigate to it "cold" (that is, directly via url), or locally via SPA interface. You can see that by viewing the page's source. It's indexable/crawlable.
If you're migrating, I'd encourage you to set up redirects so your links to existing topics/categories are not lost, but otherwise, you should be good to go.
