So I keep thinking about tinyib. It is only 1.5 mb of files, and it can do anything other imageboards can do. It can even deploy in flatfile mode, which makes it so anyone can set up an instant site on just about any php server.
Instead of trying to modify 50mb or so of thousands of files of code, why not just build on tinyib? Tinyib proves that one does not need thousands of files to run an imageboard. So wtf do ppl have thousands of files in like vichan for? Every single file is another potential way to do an sql injection or xss injection. For example, people in the know can run one of the files, for example just point the browser to mychan.org/inc/data/hidden.php AND put the proper syntax afrer the hidden.php, like mychan.org/inc/data/hidden.php?3w the ?3w can do anything, reveal ip's manipulate the db, anything. It seems that chan boards don't give a rats ass about security, and they all just say oah gee let us know if there are any bugs.

Greetings, anon. I found this thread - and this chan - from a ddg search about imageboards. I share the same views as you I was even building a small imageboard in Go because of that.
But I have mixed feelings about imageboards and I'll express those below:
- Do we need yet another imageboard software? I mean do we have enough people looking to new imageboard software?
- How much is too much? Is 50mb of deps too much? Do we need a new stack? For example I plan to do my software run on containers as you'll only need a simple script to update it as Go binaries are 7mb/15mb.
- Do we need new features? User accounts so you can keep track of replies and watch threads or even a new "UI/UX"?
- Do we follow bigger software standards as response layout (vichan's .json endpoint)?

You bring up several good questions here. Also, I'd love to check out your Go imageboard software. Can't lie that I've been doing a similar project, hah.

>Do we need yet another imageboard software? I mean do we have enough people looking to new imageboard software?

This is a tough question. I'd say the first part is largely philosophical. There are a lot of options, and there is a lot of variety among them. But imageboards are a fun software to work with and there's always something new that one can attempt to apply to the imageboard dynamic. For the second part, I really don't think the audience is there anymore. I feel imageboards and *chans in general are becoming a niche thing.

>How much is too much? Is 50mb of deps too much? Do we need a new stack? For example I plan to do my software run on containers as you'll only need a simple script to update it as Go binaries are 7mb/15mb.

I think it's all based on what the developer is trying to achieve. Are they looking to emulate a full suite of imageboards like 4chan? Maybe they just want one imageboard? Maybe they want it to be real-time with multi-file video and audio uploads?
Dependencies and programming language stacks I feel are really up to the choice of the developer as well. You don't NEED dependencies in most cases, but they can provide you with tooling and features that would otherwise take a lot of time to create yourself, as well as maintain.

>Do we need new features? User accounts so you can keep track of replies and watch threads or even a new "UI/UX"?

This is a matter of what audience you're trying to cater to. If you make a 4chan clone, you can expect a majority of your audience are the same people who would use 4chan. User accounts are a highly controversial topic in imageboard software, see https://wakaba.c3.cx/shii/ for more on that. A new UI/UX for imageboards is always something I've been interested in, since imageboards generally use a layout that dates to the late 1990s.

>Do we follow bigger software standards as response layout (vichan's .json endpoint)?

Creating a standard for imageboards is always something I've been interested in. I do feel that imaPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

To be honest I thought your reply would take a lot longer as I didn't expect this to be a populated imageboard.
About my code, it is pretty much experimental as I'm discussing with some people what would we be aiming at the end of the project. Some of my thoughts is that it must be "portable" for a lot of reasons:
- you must be able to provide basic maintenance on the code (this is one of the reasons I'm using Go);
- you must be able to port it to another place without much configuration;
- you must be able to provide a front-end as you wish based on the resftful api (there will always be a fallback to noscript users, of course);
Most of the work is still on paper as we are thinking about the tools we'll be using to build it. For example, do we sacrifice the first point of portability with a RMDB such as postgres or do we stick with "embbeded" technology that we have in Go (ex. Badger, bbolt)? With some tests we see that it can handle a considerably number of people on your imageboard.

> I feel imageboards and *chans in general are becoming a niche thing.

Unfortunately this is true. Meanwhule you can see that there are a lot of communities rising. I mean, look at this: http://textboard.org/prog. It's basically a textboard with LISP enthusiastics. I feel that even though imageboards are dying, specific communities are being born in a fast-paced manner.
But as you said, it's becoming a niche thing.

>I think it's all based on what the developer is trying to achieve.

You're 100% right here I have no comments to make.

>User accounts are a highly controversial topic in imageboard software, see https://wakaba.c3.cx/shii/ for more on that.

This is an awesome reading, thank you for sharing this. As accounts I would not identify them to other users. It would have the same aspect as the "(You)". It's debatable or I could make it optional, I don't know to be fair. I would not require an e-mail I guess as it would be a hell of verified tripfags. hah

>I do feel that imageboard JSON APIs should try to follow a general standard in the sake of compatibility.

Ever hear of lynxchan? At least if you had a lynxchan site you would be having a shitty site that not one person comes to and a patreon acct with zero subscribers - but at least it would be modern. A php site like this with thousands of lines of code just to post a file is nothing short of absolutely laughable and just shows what an idiot you are.

You are a racist against black ppl, a fat slob, and its fucking laughable that you think thousands of lines of code is needed for a fucking imageboard. Oah and php 7.4 has been a out a long time, douchebag.

Have you even bothered trying to run Tinyboard on 7.4 yourself? You seem pretty salty, and idk why you're posting insults in here thinking I'm going to actually respond in any positive way to them. Also I have no idea why you're babbling about "thousands of lines of code" - I never defended the need for it nor said it wasn't possible without. There's several examples of imageboard software running with a low code base (TinyIB comes to mind).

Throwing the race card makes no sense here either, lmao.

Like I said earlier, Tinyboard is a hobby for me. If you don't like what I've done to it, seriously just pack up and leave.

your version calls on tons of private github repos which is thousands of lines of code. Your version is not secure and you are fat.

1) is your board able to run on php 7.4 yet?
2) you say you took out some of the unnecessary code on the repo, but then since one has to use composer, it essentially ads thousands and thousands of lines of code from all the dependancies in the composer files. THis seems both unnecessary and a profoundly huge security risk. So why is your way any safer or better than just installing vichan?

 No.118

>>117

1.) I still can't guarantee it until it reaches Debian or Ubuntu Linux distributions, which I test it on. My guess is it should work just fine, I'm not aware of any specific compatibility issues, but you never know what can pop up from under the woodwork.

2.) I'd argue Composer keeps Tinyboard more secure by making security related updates to dependencies as simple as a command. If exposure of these files is a concern to you, I'd be using something like .htaccess to deny viewing access. Also, Github tracks security risks that your project may have if you use a Composer dependency file. vichan is not actively developed with the exception of paid support/security.

Also, I'd like you to know I'd appreciate if you didn't create a thread for each reply you have to my comments, as well as keep the uploaded content SFW on the SFW boards. Replying to a thread and following site rules should not be a chore. Thanks.

1)
When someone is in the admin panel, under recent posts/erase local data, when I click on erase local data it does nothing. What is that for?

2)would it be possible to have it so only a subject is required? I was thinking that doing so could possibly reduce server load and also make things easier for the user. Like if someone wants to just upload an image, if the body is required then the person just usually enters random keys in the comment like wsfr. Just an idea.

When one disables requiring anything, it is possible to just press send and it goes through as a blank post like in the pic. Would it be possible to put error correcting in there to prevent that? Also if one selects a file and also a youtube embed is entered, it they will not both show up in the post. Maybe error handling telling the person they can't do a file and embed?

Tinyboard already allows you to change the requirements of an OP post:
$config['force_body_op'] and $config['force_image_op']

So i'm on a vpn and maybe that's why- but write the comment, and hit send. it says one needs to do the verification, fine, so it has a back link. After hitting the back link, one sees a blank comment area, the text is gone. I can get the text back by hitting the browser back button twice, interestingly enough.


Sometimes it does the same thing if I forget to enter an image. When I hit the link it gives to go back, the text is blanked out, but if I hit the browser back arrow twice it brings back the text of the comment.

It may just be the vpn that I use causing this effect. Sometime maybe you can see if you can recreate the possible bug? Sometimes the back button works and the comment is still there, sometimes after one sees the error message that says one forgot to send an image or do the captcha, the comment text is gone

Connect via m.ircd.moe via port 6667. If you need SSL, you can use port 6697 but expect issues with domain validation unless you connect to one of the specific nodes (dejavu, noodle, spider). As for NickServ, I can try to help you out once you're on.
