Is the NOI engine for question and answers open source?


(Marjan Kalanaki) #1

I am a student in University College London and we are developing a web application that needs a similar functionality of question and answers available on NOI. I was wondering if NOI has used or built an open source framework for this matter?

Hi @marji_sound, thanks for your interest. Yes, it’s open source. We use Discourse. There are install instructions here.

In order to integrate it into a web app like we did for NOI, however, be prepared to do a pretty significant amount of customization using Discourse’s SSO hooks and API.
