Open-source blogging/forum software written in V.
(The name is not final, name suggestions are welcome.)
This is pre-alpha software.
Lots of things are broken and not implemented yet in V, vweb, and vorum.
Setting up the database
Install Postgres and libpq, create a database
vorum (you can use any name), and run the initialization script:
psql -f init_postgres_db.sql -d vorum
Edit Postgres connection settings (Postgres user and db name) in
V 0.1.23 is required.
git clone https://github.com/vlang/vorum cd vorum v . ./vorum Running vorum on http://localhost:8092...
Everything, including HTML templates, is in one binary ~100 KB file
vorum. That's all you need to deploy.
Setting up GitHub authentication
Right now only GitHub authentication is supported. (Traditional registration via email will be implemented soon.)
Create a GitHub oauth app (GitHub Settings => OAuth Apps).
Set Authorization callback URL to https://your-forum-url.com/oauth_cb.
Copy Client ID and Client Secret, and update the values in
vweb HTML templates are precompiled and are part of the application's binary, so every time a template is changed, the entire app has to be rebuilt. This will be resolved in the future.
no epoll/kqueue yet. So the performance is pretty bad until this is implemented: about 1k req/sec.
Right now only Postgres is supported. SQLite, MySQL, and MS SQL backends will be supported in the future.
