Install Discourse into a Glitch project


#1

Hey there! I am wanting to make forums for my website. I have found that Discourse seems good enough for the job. But how can I install it onto a blank Glitch project? Not in my existing website’s project.

For Discourse you need Ruby, Postgres and Redis installed, so a Glitch project won’t have enough space. I’d suggest using their hosted version or look for a Node.js based forum

Ok, thanks for your help!

Also, is MongoDB allready installed? Since I’m using NodeBB and it requires MongoDB.

No, we suggest using a third-party service like mlab.com to host MongoDB - they have a free plan.
