PPC Posting Board 2.0
NOTE: ** Archives generated before 2017 should to be run through
tools/fix_old_archive.rb before being imported into fresh installations**
This is a little project to build a web 1.5 posting board. The community is currently using an ancient bulletin-board system, several members have been extolling the virtues of a PHPbb setup with subforums and whatnot, and I opened my big fat mouth and said "Hey! This looks like a perfect use for the Model-View-Controller design pattern!"
I may come to regret this.
Design documents should all be OS-agnostic, in the doc/ directory.
What to expect:
- Ruby on Rails
- One set of posts, many ways to look at it
- Optional authentication, with options
What not to expect:
- Fast development
- Incredibly mind-blowing code
Note: to archive a running T-Board into the usual format, execute
include ApplicationHelper; ApplicationController.helpers.dump_posts_in_range(from_date, to_date)
and get the resulting string into a file somewhere (Heroku wants base64 and some newlines after this to prevent data loss)

- Delta Juliette (AKA Captain Vim, Techno.Dann@gmail.com) Development setup
customize it to fit your local database setup. Please do the same for
