I’m not a web designer, but I can really appreciate a good design. I get the same vibe from Discourse… In fact, I was so impressed I installed it to a site of mine. I had to buy separate hosting tho as cPanel and all the Discourse components don’t work well together.
This is a recent project of mine: http://phpfiddle.io/ You may of heard of jsfiddle[ http://jsfiddle.net ] It’s a copy of the same idea, except with PHP. There are obvious dangers, so each “fiddle” is run in it’s own virtual environment.
I really would like to learn Python soon. I started a while back, but couldn’t find the time.
