    I was able to install it by following the instructions from here:
    I already have node.js installed on my computer. I did not install redis or nginx.
    I have a mac, so on Terminal, after I created a directory called "nodebb", I skipped the first few lines of the instructions, and just pointed to the directory I created, by using the "cd" command. I then created another directory called NodeBB inside the nodebb directory. You may skip creating two directories and just create a directory called "NodeBB". I pointed to this directory by using the cd command.
    Then this line
    "git clone -b v1.15.x ."
    was the key for me.
    After I typed that, nodebb was cloned to the directory.
    Then I ran "./nodebb setup".
    I used mongo for the database.
    When prompted, I pasted the connection string that I got from mongodb's site. I substituted "nodebb" for the database part in the string. (I set up mongodb (Cloud Atlas) beforehand). The instructions that come up on Terminal will tell you to call your database "nodebb".
    After that step, the program ran automatically and installed the files. It asked me to put in the username and password for mongodb and it also asked me to choose a name for admin and password. You might have to wait a while as it pauses for a long time after "Confirm Password". I thought there was some problem and was tempted to abort the operation, as it was taking a long time, but it did come up with further instructions after a while.
    I typed "./nodebb start" when the setup finished and then went to "localhost:4567", and this time, I was able to see a normal board, and could log in as admin.
    I write this follow-up in case another mac user has trouble installing nodebb. In the end, setup was pretty straightforward and did not involve a lot of steps. My OS is High Sierra.
    The instructions, including the ones for Linux, at the official nodebb site did not work for me.

    Is your name Tom? Did you create MySpace? he he he...

    In any case, looks like you'd want to create a plugin to do this... listening for the hook for user filter:register.complete maybe...

    I wanted persona to be similar to what you're thinking, so you get /recent and then also posts from people you follow.

    The idea is it'll be a card-based interface and you could on mobile swipe away things you weren't interested in or archive stuff for later

    Anyways, I'm running into a brick wall for the desktop version of the UX, so I haven't made much progress on that idea just yet. Open to hearing any suggestions 🙂

    @psychobunny any progress for the card-based theme you talked about here?
