yafinr – Yet Another Forum (in Ruby)

After installing and supporting YAF.NET (http://www.yetanotherforum.net) for a couple of clients, I have decided to build another YAF, but I’ll do it in Ruby. The trips back into the land of ASP.NET and C# have been painful to say the least.

So tonight I started hacking… haven’t done much of that in a while, too busy wrapping my head around the trappings of managing an increasing team of developers at YELLOWPAGES.COM. So I got the latest rails, created a respository on my dreamhost account for SVN, and then realized… wait… why SVN? Why not git?

I have an account on github, so in an effort not to fall too far behind I went to install git:

port install git-core

-bash: port: command not found

Ah yes… this is not my personal Mac, it is my YPC Mac, MacPorts has not yet been installed. So I went out and got 1.60 of MacPorts… installed nice and easy, and started the git install. Well I forgot the amount of time required to install git on a pretty clean Mac. It’s still fetching bits and pieces, building ncurses as I type.

So tomorrow night I’ll actually through a basic site up on yafinr.randquist.us, and go from there.

My initial thoughts are to reverse engineer the functionality of yaf.net. I like the product, just don’t like moding it.

On another note I fired off quotations (some late) to RubyNation, “Voices that Matter: Professional Ruby Conference”, and the WindyCity Rails Conf.
