Forum software in Ruby, besides RForum?

Discussion in 'Ruby' started by Rick DeNatale, Aug 23, 2006.

  1. This might be a rails question, but then again maybe theres something
    which isn't a rails app.

    I've been asked to do a proposal on a web site which incorporates a
    user forum, and file uploads/downloads.

    I looked around for a ruby alternative to phpBB and it's spawn, and
    all I've seen so far is RForum. The biggest problem with RForum is
    that it doesn't seem to support threaded presentation of
    converstations (based solely, I admit on looking at sites using it).

    Are there other alternatives written in Ruby?

    I found Beast (http://beast.caboo.se/) last week, and it looks
    promising.

    You could write your own using acts_as_threaded:

    In fact, I think the demo does just that ;)
