NodeBB is a next-generation forum software using a groundbreaking web technology stack – Node.js, Redis, and WebSockets. We’ve designed it to be easy to set up. NodeBB will always be free and open source, allowing creative programmers and designers the freedom of building cool features and themes in a modular framework.
NodeBB uses proven concepts from the best web applications today – single sign-on, social network connectivity, and a responsive design that transitions fluidly from desktop, to tablet, to phone.
Forums, in some form or another, have been around longer than most of us have been online. Since then, forum software has remained stagnant, with no real game-changing enhancements. NodeBB aims to change all of that.
Starting with a fresh foundation (Node.js, NoSQL, AJAX), we've re-built the forum the way it is meant to be enjoyed – preserving every aspect of the forum that works, and discarding that which does not.
