Integrating NodeBB in angular website

Technical Support
  • Hey,

    I'm planning to rewrite my website from php to node with angular2, the website has a forum so I'm looking for a replacement. I wonder how hard it would be to integrate NodeBB in a website. I'm looking for the following features:

    • Shared user authentication, I already have registered users
    • Ability to put NodeBB under the 'forum' link in the main menu
    • Nice to have: chats/notifications that are usable when the user is on another page of my website

    Thanks for your time 🙂

  • @luukholleman I think it will all depend on how skilled you are in Javascript. NodeBB has an inbuilt api so shared user authentication will be rather easy.

    Because of the API, Your chats / notifications should be able to be done rather easily too. Just need to get the user to login via nodebb's login then you can pull notifications. How you do that is up to you and how you make it notify is also up to you.

    Nodebb as the forum link. Yeah thats easy. Put nodebb in a dir of "forums" and then just link to it 😛

    Moving away from php is a good idea and seeing as nodebb and angular both use node.js it looks like you are going with the right forum software.
