Easy way to experiment with Discourse




  • I haven't tried it myself - I'm not into inflicting self-harm. I did try the Rust container though. Neat stuff.



  • What do they pay you?



  • I like the testimony at the bottom of the page :

    "Sometimes, I care about the details, but most of the time, I don't."

    Oh, hey, another one.

    Tempted to see how it stacks up compared to Cloud9. Because their editor is impressively good for something that's build in JS in a browser.

    Has GitHub integration too

    Only one free container though.

    And that animation of the editor looks suspiciously similar to Cloud9's. Coincidence or...


  • sockdevs

    They do look suspiciously alike...

    never attribute to coincidence what cna be attributed to lazy developers.

    except for their pricing page! EEK! cloud9 wind there hands down.

    Nothing, I just shared it because it was cool and seemed relevant to this community.

    As for Cloud9, I actually hadn't heard of it until now - I'll check it out.



  • This is nice. Is Discourse a gateway drug to bad practices and immaturity? I don't know, I don't care, I'm having fun.

    It's pretty good, and well-priced too. Integrated with GitHub as well, so cloning your repos happens as part of setting up a new environment, which is as simple as a few clicks.

    not only better priced but the free tier gives you unlimited free public workspaces and one SSH workspace (only 512MB ram in them, you need to pay for private or more RAM)



  • This is a great idea. Because now people can try out Discourse and either:

    1. Decide it's a pile of shit right away
    2. Not be completely sure-- so decide to try to create their own install of it-- and THEN be sure it's a complete pile of shit.

    :poop:

    1. See it's a pile of shit and then use it anyway.
