and we have our first thread and its two replies served in the browser live!

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

just finished the registration cookie bit and i think it's basically complete for this incipient stage.

tomorrow, i'll do some bug hunting, cleaning up, and writing the about page. after that i'll see if i can find someone else from the instance to test it a bit with me before deploying :3

the first version of the merveilles forum will come online tomorrow evening

get yr thread engines started 🧵
