An open-source forum engine, with an Elixir+Phoenix backend and an Elm frontend.
This is the Firestorm Forum project. We've just reached the "initial dogfooding" phase and you can view the first deployed version at http://firestorm-dogfood.herokuapp.com.
The design document is a good place to start reading if you're unfamiliar with the project.
This project was funded by a Kickstarter.
All of the patrons that made it possible are listed in the PATRONS file.
At present, we're wrapping up the initial design phase. Having said that, here are the planned features and their status:
- Continuous Integration
- We're using Semaphore CI for this
- Continuous Deployment
- At present, we only support GitHub. We'll support a lot more services in the future, but until we're happy with the state of the rest of the dogfooding session we'll stick with GitHub.
- Email (first class!)
- The goal here is to be a fantastic replacement for Google Groups
- Personal Messaging
- Slack Integration
- Plugin System
Attachments are stored on S3. Consequently, you will need to create an S3 bucket to store them, as well as an API user that can write to it and list all of your buckets, and configure the bucket for CORS.
You also need to set 4 environment variables:
export AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID=XXXX export AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY=XXXX export AWS_S3_BUCKET=XXXX export AWS_S3_REGION=XXXX
Here's an example CORS configuration:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <CORSConfiguration xmlns="http://s3.amazonaws.com/doc/2006-03-01/"> <CORSRule> <AllowedOrigin>http://localhost:4000</AllowedOrigin> <AllowedMethod>POST</AllowedMethod> <AllowedHeader>*</AllowedHeader> </CORSRule> <CORSRule> <AllowedOrigin>http://firestorm-dogfood.herokuapp.com</AllowedOrigin> <AllowedMethod>POST</AllowedMethod> <AllowedHeader>*</AllowedHeader> </CORSRule> </CORSConfiguration>
