Agreper - Minimal, no-JS web forum software

demindiro - 2 months ago (last modified 2 months ago)

Agreper is a minimal forum board with a focus on ease of management.

I originally made this to learn SQL, but at the same time I wanted to make something that would be useful in the long term.

The main feature to make it stand out from other forum software is being quick to set up and low maintenance. Any further developments will mainly focus on this.

Being free of Javascript is important to be useful for users who do not trust their browser's JS VM to be free of security issues.

Great work! Thanks for making this open source. I’ve always wondered how a JavaScript free forum would look like. Cheers.

Now i need a php port of this.. (Since cpanel-based hosting is much cheaper and more widely available than python-based hosting)..

reply

It's a wonder that most shared hosters still don't support Python.

reply
rtnf - 2 months ago | thread parent

Especially with no dependency at all, even no sql dependency. Pmwiki is one of great example of minimal, no-dependency, php webapp.

Why is it called agreper?

reply
demindiro - 2 months ago | thread parent

I was originally going to call it 'Agrepy' from 'aggregator' and 'Python', but that name is already used by another Python project.

I then considered calling it 'Agrepo' but agrepo.com is already taken by HugeDomains.

Finally I came up with Agreper which didn't seem to be used by anyone.

While the board looks and works fine in Emacs (eww mode) and links, the message list gets flattened out, obscuring the message hierarchy. If you represented message trees as nested ordered lists, where the messages are the leaf items, you could get even browsers that are oblivious to CSS to display correctly.

Even so, this is a very nice board to use; excellent work!

[Edited for clarity, and to test the editing function.]

That's cool.

Let's check the basic XSS protections:

<script>alert('hmmm');</script>

but also "><script>alert(document.cookie)</script>

;) Let's see how it goes.

But that's a pretty cool forum. Looks pretty minimalist to me.
