Anonymous BBS (26)

Hello /code/.

Shiichan sucks and is written in PHP. Kareha sucks, is written in Perl (which causes more issues than anything else ever could when trying hard to do so) and doesn't scale well at all, seeing how a board of just the size of 4-ch needs to use archiving scripts in order to keep things running smoothly.

Is there any sane BBS software out there or do I have to try and do it myself, despite not being too much of a coder?

If you don't like PHP or Perl, good luck. That's pretty much what the entire internet is using.

3 Name: #!/usr/bin/anonymous : 2011-02-06 17:31 ID:Heaven

All textboard software sucks. Kareha just sucks less, and Shiichan could also suck less if VacBob actually bothered to clean it up, but I guess not.

Become a coder and code one in Python.

I don't understand why people will use the language that an application is written in as a reason for it being bad. If it is a tool that performs within your requirements and has the features that you need, who cares what its written in?

5 Name: #!/usr/bin/anonymous : 2011-02-07 17:36 ID:oTmDGJqD

PHP is just ugly. And Shiichan has undocumented features, BBCode, very serious comments all over the place, horrible logic. Take a look at it and barf.

CGI/Perl is just notorious for causing issues. Especially kareha insisting on having the index.html in the same location as The moderation could also maybe need some better ACL. I know, trust your moderators and stuff, but it doesn't feel right.

We are sick of language discrimination, more so the PHP/Java bashers. There will be little tolerance of blatant and repetitive insults. You are still welcome to bring forward a sensible, insult-free argument regarding a certain topic at the appropriate time and place for it.

Is there one based on Ruby? If not, I would be willing to help develop one. It would be a good way to beef up my Ruby skills...

My point was that the language of a tool is not reason for it to be considered bad. Your reasons against shiichan are due to poor coding practices, not simply because it was written in PHP. You could find a poorly coded application in any language, but that in itself is not a reason to dislike that language. You shouldn't dislike well written applications simply because of the language that they were written in either.

Personally, I don't like PHP and no longer use it for new projects. Is that going to stop me from using a PHP application if it is the "best" tool for the job? No.

AOMEI Backupper is the simplest FREE backup software with system/disk/partition/file backups and system/disk clone.

Have you considered <del>converting to Scientology and discovering what Lord Xenu wants for you</del> I mean Re-writing it in Rails?

Use textboard mode in TinyIB and edit CSS so it looks more like a traditional textboard.

Other than that you're absolutely fucked anon. Try making one yourself.

why not do it yourself.

Heck, I have a quick prototype of a textboard written up (in go, no less). It was a fun little project.

It's hard to say what you are looking for and what exactly is your problem with all the other software. But despite more than seven years have passed by and you may already have found something, I just want to chime in dietchan:

It's very small and lean, but still under development.

23 Name: #!/usr/bin/anonymous : 2018-09-15 10:04 ID:+kgq9GC/

You can take any imageboard engine and just disable image posting. Or install forum software you like and make possible to post without registration.

If you're into language puritanism then you may want to use which is written in MIT Scheme.
