How to build a community/forum like this one?

Hi everyone,

I noticed that many companies have community forums like this one (and they all have the same UI which makes it easy for new people to use a new forum like this), which is really helpful for people to help each other.

However, I couldn’t find how to set up a forum like that. I assume that there is some library/framework that everyone is using, since they all look the same.

Does anyone know what kind of software they use?

Hey @steph, this forum is powered by Discourse. You can pay Discourse to host, or you can use their open source software to host elsewhere. We host this forum in a DigitalOcean droplet.
