Topic: Ruby-Based Forum Engine

Can anyone recommend a good ruby-based forum along the lines of phpBB or vBulletin?

I've looked in to several options, such as rForum and rorBB, but none of them really seem developed enough.  If there isn't anything that mature, has anyone tried integrating phpBB into their ruby installation?  I'd like to avoid duplicating user records, etc, if possible.

Thanks!

Have a look at rBoard. It's developed by Radar who posts (used to?) here, its on github.

Take a look at Forulio - tag based forum engine. It is ruby based.

We *just* recently added one of the Altered Beast variants to our site. http://www.fantasypostseason.com/forums

We had to add a few features to the forum code though -- such a emoticons and a profanity filter.
