Can Discourse do what ost.io does?


(Erlend Sogge Heggen) #1

Just heard about an interesting lightweight discussion platform that focuses on creating small discussion hubs for GitHub repositories. It’s called ost.io

Here’s an example forum:
http://ost.io/@chaplinjs/chaplin

I have similar hopes and dreams for Discourse you see :stuck_out_tongue: Being able to create micro-hubs for individual repositories related to an overarching open source project would be absolute bliss…


The term "ost.io" creates trouble for search
Discourse plugin for static site generators like Jekyll or Octopress

Maybe, but that seems laser focused on GitHub. It should be better for its intended, specialized audience.

What is old ost.io up to these days? :wink:
