I would like to work to making the conversations on my (future) forum as engaging a possible. I would like to implement as much as I can of what makes Slack so good into my forum. One feature I love in Slack is the ability to react to posts with a simple emoticon. Voting up and down is nice but doesn't always express what you need.

Post reactions/emoticons like in Slack
Ghost/Wordpress Article -> NodeBB post
I may be looking into making this myself at some point down the road but I have a lot of things going on that will slow me down. In case someone here can get to this (and probably have an easier time than I) faster than me, I wanted to share the idea. The most difficult aspect of this idea is I believe it will likely result in needing a plugin for both NodeBB and the blog engine.
I plan to host a Ghost CMS blog and use the NodeBB commenting engine plugin. What I want is the ability to post new blog post to Ghost CMS and have a NodeBB forum thread created. Ideally, this thread in NodeBB would be indicated with some kind of special badge showing that this post is really a link to the blog.
I think what I would probably like to do is also integrate the comment engine functionality into this plugin as the aim of this plugin is to try to unify these systems a little bit. My main goal is to give the blog the same interactivity a forum sees. The blog will act similar to a high-quality forum thread so I'd like the users to be able to interact the same way.
If no one here wants to tackle this, it will at least serve as a discussion to help guide me when I give it a shot.
- From Ghost CMS select that post will also create a NodeBB thread (select category)
- NodeBB will create a "symbolic" link to the blog post. A fake listing that links to the blog
- Enable voting on article (tied to the nodeBB votes system)
RE: [nodebb-plugin-blog-comments] Blog Commenting Engine (Ghost, Wordpress widget)
Hoping this is still good Looks like there's a recent commit though so . I have a need for another plugin that integrates with GhostCMS so I hope this will be able to help me see how to do that as well. Thank you! If I can figure this all out I promise to release the plugin.
[REQUEST] NodeBB install on AWS. Using Elastic Beanstalk, ElastiCache, and S3
I am jumping the gun a bit, I haven't even set up my local dev environment yet, but I am thinking about my future deployment strategy. I am aiming to make full use of AWS, but not just using EC2 as a VPS which has the same drawbacks as any other vps system. I want the speed and reliability of the distributed system of the AWS cloud. In my personal situation, I plan to install Ghost CMS along with NodeBB and need those to be able to communicate, bonus points if you help with that.
AWS is something I am only just now starting to look into. I am setting up a local dockerfile setup for local dev at the moment, but at the moment I have no idea how to achieve the above.
Hope someone here is feeling generous!
