Discourse and mean stack



I have a web app written mostly in JS, using the mean.io stack. We are looking to fully integrate discourse with the platform. How easy would it been to integrate? I realise it’s mostly built on Ruby on Rails.

Does anyone have and tips or advice on how easy it would be to stitch together with an mean.io app?

Well, it depends on what you mean by “integrate” and “stitch together”. What are you trying to do?


Take a look at the site - www.inzite.io

We’d like to add Question/Answer stye integrations to user profile and link users to their discourse posts etc.


So combining posts with a JS rendered page on the site and linking our users registered in mongoldb via mean.io to the discourse login (one login)


Anyone have any ideas on this please?

Use Discourse SSO for account.

Discourse offers the embed features. However it depends on how you want to use it.
Discourse offers a extensive API. You can build your own UI based on the JSON.
