This weekend I want to make a clone of 4 chan. It won’t be as big as 4chan lol.
But still I’ll use this post to design and decide the stack to use.

What is 4 chan

4chan is a simple image-based bulletin board where anyone can post comments and share images. There are boards dedicated to a variety of topics, from Japanese animation and culture to videogames, music, and photography. Users do not need to register an account before participating in the community.

What we want 5chan to be

  • Text based
  • Anonymous [ no registration ]
  • Posts
  • Replies to posts
  • Timeline of posts on homepage

The tech stack :




  • Heroku

Hmmm. Thats something I can work out in a day or two for sure.
