It looks like some of this is solved with the SSO functionality. We'll be interested in how seamless it is for a user that is logged into our site to be able to move to a forum page and have it all just work. Then, in how we access information related to the Nodebb discussions. There is some expected behaviour from a user interaction perspective, that is the devil in the details. Like, which profile do I go to when I click on the profile photo in a discussion? We'd like it to be the profile on our site, obviously.
We'll definitely be interested in the second part as well. i.e. being able to instantiate a thread from our app
We've gone through an integration effort with Disqus, so we're aware of some of the nitty gritty.
Really looking forward to digging in.
