Discourse is an open source Internet forum and mailing list management software application founded in 2013 by Jeff Atwood, Robin Ward, and Sam Saffron. Discourse received funding from First Round Capital and Greylock Partners.
From a usability perspective, Discourse breaks with existing forum software by including features recently popularized by large social networks, such as infinite scrolling, live updates, oneboxing, expanding links, and drag and drop attachments. However, the stated goals of the project are social rather than technical, to improve online discussion quality through improved forum software.
The following software is required on a server to run Discourse:
- Atom (text editor)
- Boing Boing
- Diaspora (social network)
- Docker (software)
- Julia (programming language)
- Let's Encrypt
- Nextcloud 
- .NET Foundation
- Open Knowledge International
- Public administrations
- Rust (programming language)
- SitePoint Forums
