Dynamic multisite deployment


(Joe Shidel) #1

I have been exploring the source code to see if what I would like to do is possible, and I have come to the conclusion that it probably is with some modifications.

I would like to be able to create a discourse deployment where new forums can be created dynamically. I need a separate forum for each group that gets created on my main site.

The multisite gem uses multisite.yml to setup/manage all of the database connections. This means that this file needs to be modified in order to add a new forum (correct?).

What I would like to do is have a table, or store the data in redis. I would just need to modify the multisite gem to read from a database rather then the multisite.yml (correct?).

I would appreciate any tips on other approaches I could take, or steps I am missing in making this happen.

Also I would be happy to contribute my work back to the project If it is something that is desired, or already on the road map.
