Discourse written with Ember?

I just noticed that the discourse section of this website is written using Ember rather than Aurelia. What is the reasoning behind this choice? Would it be feasible to rewrite discourse with Aurelia and then share that development with the community?

Discourse is a discussion/forum platform not written by the Aurelia team. Here, one of the founders describes why they chose Ember.


It would not be feasible as it’s used by many other sites. This is one of those cases where you need to stick with an established application instead of dogfooding your own (which can be a major waste of time)


Yeah, I agree with that, I wasn’t aware of discourse being an established application. It would however be helpful to have more open source Aurelia applications out there. Discourse written with Aurelia would have been a great sample project.
