Some others have asked about it as well. I tried to do it but was unsuccessful. I think the problem is RequireJS, it might work with the proper configuration of requirejs and angular, but I haven't been able to figure it out.
It's kinda sad that I can't import old content / users. The site is running behind Nginx so apache issues aren't really a thing. All requests are proxied to NodeBB so I'm assuming the importer just doesn't work. Anyone wanna help me import topics and posts manually?
@zipang yes of course we'll support Node 8 but to do so we have to drop support for all Node versions prior to v6. You can understand why we'd be hesitant to do so so quickly after our last major version release.
