The Maiko forum


Introduction

Maiko is a file-based forum (BB/bulletin board) system written in Python using the Bottle WSGI micro web-framework. Python 2.6.6+ or 3.3.2+ is required and, other than Bottle (which is included), has no dependencies outside the Python Standard Library. Apache 2.2.15+ with mod_wsgi can be used for serving over the web. The author can be reached at marco@reimeika.ca.

Maiko is currently at version 1. It has no plugin support and is considered feature complete, meaning further releases will only serve to fix bugs or improve performance (in lock-step with Bottle, if need be). Later versions will be numbered in a manner approximating the golden ratio φ, i.e. "1.6", "1.61", "1.618", etc.

Maiko is distributed under the 3-clause BSD license. Bottle was written by Marcel Hellkamp and distributed under the MIT license.
