took a code break yesterday (pondered later structural facets after some back and forth with devine :)
anyway, you can now create new threads from the browser :>
on the train home, tapping away at the account registration & authentication bits
hope to have a first version of the forum running for y'all this weekend! :>
busy putting together the small pieces that make the whole work; showing error messages, error handling, testing the registration flow, etc
there are many steps to making even the most basic forum suitable for cohabitation :>
ayoo we have (scripting safe!) forum markup a-going
note: the embedded image is an image of the forum

@skyfaller golang, probably going to be AGPL (tho i'm inclined to do something like anti-cap license for the luls)
it's specifically made for merveilles, mind so ymmv :)
@cblgh Whoa, I'm super impressed by how fast you were able to pump this out. 👏
Looking forward to check it out!
@rostiger happy to hear that 🥰
i'm pleasantly surprised it came together this quickly :) there's more to do—of course—but there always is, isn't there
looking forward to your posts!
@stunder they are coming out with too many things all the time! lots of thing left not covered in the interview :D
@cblgh so great! If you need hosting help or want to move to postgres at any point, let me know. Will hopefully look to see if there are any code contributions I can make tonight :D
So excited for merveilles to grow.
@cblgh eyyyy, nice. I am super on board with all of those reasons for its creation and think it'll be a great fit for merv folks 🖤
@cblgh very excited, I wanna tinker around and maybe make a CSS sheet for it (maybe even custom themes :0)
