@pitaj Having a branch for the production version with a similar dump output is actually a great idea. You can solve the conflicts during git merge (or PRs if there would be a tea working on this) and there should be no problem.
Is it possible to add NodeBB to another project
We have a project that is built for a completely different set of specifications with its own user authentication mechanism. One of the requirements is to have a forum for the users.
Is it possible to integrate nodebb as a section of this application with the same users?
I think SSO will do the magic. But you will have to make your own plug-in to Integrate.
