Got on HN, Forem is doing great :^)

I self-host Forem at https://zig.news and a particularly nice post got us on the front page of HN today. At first I was a bit worried:

But the site seems to be holding up well, even if we're getting a good number of concurrent requests.

almost 200 concurrent users

And the small Digital Ocean droplet is chugging along nicely.

25% CPU utilization

Not bad!

Very happy this is working!!!

The CDN/edge caching story is not entirely worked out on self-host (it could be, it's just not baked in)... So glad to see no major problems.

I'd say keep working away at combing through the admin area to get to a state of "full config", as there are probably still some missing things here and there you could get worked out to your benefit, but congrats!

Zig seems like a really great project for Forem.
