New Lightweight Forum Software
agoldenberg Member, Host Rep
I saw a post here about a month ago now, and have been unable to find it. It was a super lightweight forum system in PHP I believe. Anyone know what I'm talking about?
Flarum is where it's at honestly
That's the one! Thanks!!
Looks like it isn't even in beta yet. lol!
Flarum's backend is in NodeJS as for my knowledge not PHP
Their code on github looks to be PHP.... maybe a NodeJS / PHP stack?
You can pull it from github. But still in alpha I think
@QuadCone it looks like they are using Laravel?
Oh yeah! it does look PHP Laravel. I was confused with Ghost blog and Flarum :P
Is FluxBB a part of Flarum now / they've joined with them?
Yes Franz is now part of the development team.
Well, before Flarum, there is esoTalk
Even Xenforo / VB does not lag.
I'm also looking for something without js. Would you recommend any?
How lightweight are we talking. If you want something really simple and know some PHP you could make your own as a fun little project
Anyone knows what kind of forum script is this (found it while googling).
It says powered by lithium. I'm pretty much like it.
Welcome to 2015. Unless you're into some specific niche targeting old people, everyone will have js anyways.
@fritz it is lithium http://www.lithium.com/powered-by-lithium
Flarum looks interesting to try..
Also is flarum has rss like xenforo?
Progressive enhancement is a thing, and has been around for a good while, and even a few SPA frameworks (React, RiotJS, Angular2?) are starting to reimplement it.
There is no good reason to require JS for anything that isn't a highly interactive webapp. Any site where people spend more time reading than interacting, should work without JS. 2015 or not.
