Are there currently any providers out there that offer hosted, managed esoTalk?
I ask because I'm close to finishing a very reliable method of deploying esoTalk on a shared server using Docker. It's also super easy to add plugins, although plugin compatibility in some places is lacking (cannot use SMTP plugin because I'm using HHVM instead of PHP). This is a problem for later, though.
I would think there's room in the market for a modern forum-as-a-service provider that is more lightweight than IPB and cheaper than Discourse, especially if there is a good ecosystem of skins and plugins (which I'm willing to help make happen) and a super easy way to manage servers and install those skins and plugins (which I'm currently working on).
What do you guys think?
