Has anybody built a Widget coming out of Discourse? (picking specific category and showing as feed like Facebook feed)


As a user, I want to create a embed of discourse posts from specific category.

Not sure whether you have seen similar widgets in other places. Some of the use cases of this is

  • Showing changelog updates near login page
  • Showing changelog updates on Dashboard Page

By embedding discourse widgets outside of forum help to bring engagement to platform. (Users may end up clicking the link and coming here to reply). This is not just hyperlink but a real time feed (like from RSS or something like that) . The best similar widget is twitter stream or facebook feed.
