Build a Forum in an Ionic App

Hey Ionites!

I’ve wanted to do this for a while now - how do you build a forum as a part of your app?

Thanks.

I suppose you could build one from scratch, but given a forum lends itself to a server side implementation (multiple participants, common storage, common admin, etc) , I’m not sure its a particularly good idea to implement one in-client.

Have you considered creating a server side forum, using popular platforms like disqus and using its APIs to integrate into the client instead? https://disqus.com/api/docs/ and https://help.disqus.com/customer/en/portal/articles/1104789-mobile-integration---ios-android-windows-phone

I looked at Disqus, and it seems nice. However, I would prefer an open source alternative like Discourse.org. Do you have any experience with implementing Discourse (or Disqus for that matter) in an Ionic app?

Thanks.

Hi, no I don’t, sorry.
