Initially I was going to set up a Discourse instance, but it turned out to be way too bloated for my liking.

This simple forum/blog software is written in V and will be open sourced after the language is.

Congratulations, the forum is quietly online!

This is great. So I suppose pages of the forum are statically re-generated when posts are sent? (This is how the D forums work, which makes them fast).

On the main page it'd be good to have the number of replies to each thread and also the date/time of the last reply.

Another request: show the time of posts in the users own time zone. (At least for me in London, my post time said 3am, but it's 12pm!).

I'm not sure how to manage that with static page generation (unless you use JavaScript to display times?).

My posts in this thread say 7am, weird. (3am was for my team projects thread on the main page)

@ntrel it uses server time (NYC). Will make it local.

This a simple traditional web app, it's not statically re-generated.

I'll add additional columns with the number of comments and last reply date.

Thanks. OK so V can run on the server side, generating pages when receiving a URL request.
