How to implement Discourse with an already built Rails project


(Winston Pogi) #1

I want to use Discourse as a private messaging as well as forum. How can I use it when I already created my rails project and it only lacks the messaging and forum feature. I have read a lot of articles but I can’t find an example where it is implemented in another project. All I see is that the Discourse project is cloned and make it running. I would be glad if you could answer me concern. I really like to implement discourse with my website.
