Implementing Discourse backend in other languages?

(Joop Kiefte) #1

Continuing the discussion from Is discourse committed to being 100% ruby?:

How many LOC/% is the Ruby part? Would it be feasible/trivial to port this to e.g. Go (to ease deployment and/or put it on Google App Engine) or PHP (for use on the free/cheap webservers used by many hobbyists often without much money…)?

You know that Discourse is open source, right?

Sorry, probably lazy me… I do know it is open source, but well, I could use an excuse to start talking about the real point (portability and desirability of this).

Worst point though… I don’t think I will have time to do any of this… :frowning: I used to work as a programmer but do support work now…
