NPFchan - A lightweight and full featured PHP imageboard.

About

This is the a fork of vichan running on mlpol.net, a free light-weight, fast, highly configurable and user-friendly imageboard software package. It is written in PHP and has few dependencies.

NPFchan is a fork of vichan which is a fork of (now defunc'd) Tinyboard, a great imageboard package, actively building on it and adding a lot of features and other improvements.

Requirements

  1. PHP >= 5.6
  2. MySQL >= 5.6 or MariaDB
  3. mbstring
  4. PHP GD
  5. PHP PDO

We try to make sure NPFchan is compatible with all major web servers and operating systems. NPFchan does not include an Apache .htaccess file nor does it need one.

Recommended

  1. MySQL >= 5.7
  2. ImageMagick (command-line ImageMagick or GraphicsMagick preferred).
  3. APC (Alternative PHP Cache), XCache or Memcached

Contributing

You can contribute to NPFchan by:

  • Developing patches/improvements/translations and using GitHub to submit pull requests
  • Providing feedback and suggestions
  • Writing/editing documentation

Installation

See the Installation Guide

Please remember to change the administrator account password.

See also: Configuration Basics.

Upgrade

To upgrade from any version of Tinyboard or vichan or NFPchan:

Either run git pull to update your files if you use git, or replace all your files in place (don't remove boards etc.) and then run install.php.

To migrate from a Kusaba X board, use http://github.com/vichan-devel/Tinyboard-Migration

Support

As it stands NPFchan has no public support system.

vichan support

vichan is still beta software -- there are bound to be bugs. If you find a bug, please report it.

If you need assistance with installing, configuring, or using vichan, you may find support from a variety of sources:

  • If you're unsure about how to enable or configure certain features, make sure you have read the comments in inc/config.php.
  • Check out an official vichan board.
  • You can join vichan's IRC channel for support irc.6irc.net #vichan-devel

Tinyboard support

vichan is based on a Tinyboard, so both engines have very much in common. These links may be helpful for you as well:

  • Tinyboard documentation can be found here.

CLI tools

There are a few command line interface tools, based on Tinyboard-Tools. These need to be launched from a Unix shell account (SSH, or something). They are located in a tools/ directory.

You actually don't need these tools for your imageboard functioning, they are aimed at the power users. You won't be able to run these from shared hosting accounts (i.e. all free web servers).

Oekaki

NPFchan makes use of wPaint for oekaki.

To enable oekaki, add all the scripts listed in js/wpaint.js to your instance-config.php.

WebM support

Read inc/lib/webm/README.md for information about enabling webm.

NPFchan API

NPFchan provides by default a 4chan-compatible JSON API. For documentation on this, see: https://github.com/vichan-devel/vichan-API/ .
