Just curious - would you consider simple_discussion to be RESTFUL in the classic Rails sense? I wasn't able to use the gem as I use Tailwind for my app, and it would be too much work to change all of the Bootstrap styling (or use it in conjunction with TW) but I did have a look at the engine, and I think you have done an excellent job.

I'm curious to hear how Chris would approach building simple_discussion if he had to start from scratch using Ruby 3.2, Rails 7 and Hotwire. Cheers! -Dan H

Great, thanks Chris!

Just checked out the simple_discussion gem (extracted from the GoRails forum here). It looks like exactly what I need for a small forum project.

I'm wondering if anyone else has used the gem in production on Heroku and with a CDN such as Cloudfare, and could comment on any specific issues you may be having, or have had.

Also - I am aware of Discourse and while it works well for many use cases, I would rather avoid such a heavy duty solution as I only need simple, clean and lightweight functionality.
