This is my first post. I looked to see if this topic was covered, but didn’t find anything.
I am building a complex Amazon Web Services hosted application.
I am using Grails to develop the application. Grails provides much of the functionality that is provided by Ruby on Rails, but for Groovy/Java.
The application is tightly integrated in the way it controls access to content among the users. As a result, it would be difficult or impossible to host Discourse as a “side application”. I need the blog software integrated with the access and security layers that I have implemented.
Is it possible to host Discourse on a non-Rails backend? Would doing so require a complete rewrite of a large base of server code or is there a straight forward API?
