More FlaskBB development

Reading time: 1 minute Suggest an edit

The train keeps rolling. I've been busying myself with more FlaskBB development lately. I took the Docker image and expanded it into a docker-compose example. I've also built a plugin for managing email and RSS notifications and another for adding a dice-rolling macro to the forum. The dicebot plugin is incredibly barebones at this point, but I hope to expand it at some point to include a custom UI with many different options for a pleasant and configurable tool to accompany play-by-post RPG sessions. Hopefully, someone finds these useful. At the very least, the subby plugin provides a feature often seen in more mature forum software, so it should get some decent mileage.

Both of the plugins required the addition of a new hook for Flaskbb, so I can rest comfortably knowing that the development effort opened the door for more customization and extensibility.
