I've been unsure what needs to be done to Tinyboard in order to make it a better software for our site.

In response, I'm creating this thread so you – the user, can make suggestions for me to implement into the site. Feel free to request anything. Hell, if you don't like what I've done, you can tell me that too. I'll listen.

The source code that we use for AwsumChan can be found at https://github.com/Circlepuller/Tinyboard

What's everyone's take on the addition of a dark mode design for sharp.css? It would probably burn your retinas a little less. Adding it would only require me to edit the CSS to have some media queries and some colors.

Additionally, I'm thinking about changing the gradient in the background at the top of pages to be CSS instead of an image as well, which would really help with dark mode and other changes that may happen.

Is there a board you feel belongs on AwsumChan? Tell us here and we'll make it a reality (or at least a temporary one).

Yes hello, this is the meta board. Here, you can talk about AwsumChan, or ask the staff/users questions.

There was a short bit of downtime where I upgraded the server to the latest version of Debian. After upgrading some packages, the site should be running smoothly. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Did you see Vichan now has a new maintainer? and he seems to want to actually work on Vichan.
I myself am happy and can't wait for the huge mess that Vichan currently is to be slowly fixed with time.

>Vichan has next to no active development.
Vichan development is officially dead, tinyib hasn't been updated in 3+ months, what is there left for PHP imageboards? JS imageboards aren't a real alternative.
Also please update TinyBoard to PHP8


vichan has now a maintainer.

Whaddaya think? I know this thread is old but just curious if anyone still uses this board.


Hello, it's been a while since I've made a post on here, but I feel that this thread is a perfect opportunity to do so.

While I am glad to see that vichan has some support from some developers, I am a little skeptical of their game plan. They state support up to 7.2, but PHP has EOL'd <7.x, meaning they're kind of behind. I know Tinyboard as it sits is somewhat guilty of this as I can only guarantee functionality up to 7.4. What I've also noticed about recent updates is various contributors adding more and more features that seem more like bloat than anything, to a legacy codebase that is well over a decade old. I personally think they're just making it harder for themselves.

I want to stress that I have not abandoned this site, the users, or the software. I check periodically on here for rule-violating content and accordingly ban and or delete it. I'm really glad to see that people do post on this site, I just don't try to be the sole driver anymore. As for Tinyboard - I've realized the codebase is old and problematic: debugging is a real pain, it lacks proper code structure, and it struggles to cling on to anything PHP 8. I've kept relatively quiet on here about it, but I've nearly completed a complete refactor of the software that will run on PHP 8, and should be much easier to run on future versions. With the consideration that Tinyboard already uses Twig, I decided to use the Symfony framework (https://symfony.com/what-is-symfony) as it is a very well maintained, world-class PHP framework with components used in many other projects and frameworks. It is completely compatible with an existing database, has much better debugging tools, and much better code structure. I'm very excited to share this labor of love with the community, and I'm hoping that soon enough it can replace code that currently is running on this site.

May 10th is AwsumChan's 13th birthday and unlike previous years I will be trying to give the site some attention during this time. A news post will be made soon with a link to our Discord, where we'll be having some events to celebrate the occasion. I'm also hoping to possibly release the in-progress project mentioned in the paragraph above. I'm not sure if the Tinyboard name is worth keeping or not, so I'm open to suggestions.

holy, didn't expect you to respond lol.

im glad you still keep a check on this site and try to keep out the garbage out of this site.

Speaking about Awsumchan's birthday, what do you plan to do?



I've mentioned in the Discord, as well as a news post on some of the stuff we will be doing.

I would like your opinion on the best infinity engine to use.
OpenIB from 8chan?
And i wont use lynxch, too bloated.


fuck off L0in


Kill yourself.

do i have to have a gui to run tinychan?
im trying to get it installed on a debian vm but the whole ugly dependency thing!
cant EVERYTHING be in a container so you just need minimal instal linux and docker, or am i super dumb?


ok i got tinyib up but i cant enable multimedia, it throws double arrow errors whatever that means. does anyone understand

Is your fork more stable or secure than reg vichan? What are the benefits of your fork over mainstream vichan? Also do you do php work? If i end up using your fork on my site would you be a consultant for it? Just easy shit like best setup options, a bit of help setting up cache, and very minor style changes. It should be super easy for you, and it would pay good.

No shit, Sherlock. Come back when your perfect project finally has these:
1. Data compatible or at least easy to migrate from/to Tb/vi;
2. Customizabiliy on par with inc/config.php, especially spamfilter and autoban regexes;
3. Platform genericity (RoR, Node, Go, whatever the next meme trend is, still hasn't beaten the popularity of plain old LA/EMP)

Regarding CDN, yes I just need cache for my cheap hosting, "security" be damned. (My nginx is configured to never serve directly outside though.) The extras are just a flip of switch away anyway so it's a loss not to explore and make full use of them.


what happened to the patreon? take my money!! and fix it, or tell me why it's not working if it should be. i want ALL THE FEATURES


>Take ANY php web app, and it can be coded to be far more efficient in node js
just, no, https://www.techempower.com/benchmarks/



The Patreon got deactivated due to lack of activity. I would reactivate it, but it would require another audit by Patreon staff and subsequent transaction activity.


So what features does Vichan have that Circlepuller/TinyBoard doesn't? Also has there been any benchmarks to compare performance between the two?

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.

> 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.

Thanks to this post i deployed some TinyIB instances and found out it isn't 1.5mb…
but 600KB!! (after some simple optimizations and deleting unnecesary folders)
so yeah it is light as all fucks and i think with some more optimization (the developer like line breaks and spaces a little too much)
you could get it to 580KB without too much trouble, maybe even less, later im going to try and make an instance as small as possible.


I just read the part about removing the db code which i agree on and will later make a fork to do so, removing that code could easily make it 550KB or even less, god i want to make an instance 500KB so bad


Anon, I didn't forget about our conversation, but the pandemic just made me start my life from the bottom again. Sorry about that.
