Which Package is being used for this Forum?


#1

I need to know which package has been used for creating this forum (forums.meteor.com)? Also how one can know by checking a web page (or it’s source code) - which package(s) has been used by the web page?

Thanks in advance.

Regards,
Sanjay Kumar

It’s not a Meteor app. It’s well known forum app called Discourse. See: https://www.discourse.org/

If using Chrome, just hit F12.

It will give you full access to everything used to create the webpage, including the javascript source. It might be minimized, but the info you seek is in there.
