5chan - The 4chan clone

This weekend I want to make a clone of 4 chan. It won't be as big as 4chan lol.
But still I'll use this post to design and decide the stack to use.

What is 4 chan

4chan is a simple image-based bulletin board where anyone can post comments and share images. There are boards dedicated to a variety of topics, from Japanese animation and culture to videogames, music, and photography. Users do not need to register an account before participating in the community. ~ 4chan Homepage

What we want 5chan to be

  • Text based
  • Anonymous [ no registration ]
  • Posts
  • Replies to posts
  • Timeline of posts on homepage

The tech stack :

Hmmm. Thats something I can work out in a day or two for sure.

You should avoid using Fiber. It is non-compliant to the HTTP standards since it's based on fasthttp. More about that here.
