Thredded is an open source internet forum software.

Thredded is written in Ruby and can be used standalone or as part of an existing Ruby on Rails application.[2] Thredded's stated goals are to be feature-rich and simple.[2]

Thredded is developed primarily by Gleb Mazovetskiy, Joel Oliveira, and Tim Diggins.[3]

Thredded has been featured on Ruby Weekly[4] and praised for its clean design.
