I’m considering using Discourse as the backend for my website and app, but I haven’t seen any documentation on its scaling limits.
What’s the maximum number of categories we can have? Is it 1000? 10,000? 100,000?
I plan to heavily use the API and create a custom frontend for both web and mobile. Part of this is programmatically creating a new Category whenever a user wants to. So it’s more of a backend systems question than the UI.
For example, will the /categories.json endpoint scale? It doesn’t seem paginated.
