Login/Forums

Hey! I've been developing a website for a while that I want to have a login and forum system, and I have no clue how to start! I have looked at Google and Github Authentication and would like to have the users be required to login with Google. How would I give people roles and make a forum system? Any libraries or databases that make it easy?

What languages do you know? Look into making a back-end, and using oauth2.

(though I'll be able to help more if you say what languages you know and proficiency)

@a5rocks I know JavaScript, Html, Css, and Php. I also know most others like Python, Ruby, Java, but I do not know any SQL

@ryanhallihan do you know more python or php? If you know python I recommend Flask as a back-end. Your authentication will vary based on the language you choose.

Actually, if you are really good at javascript, you should be able to use express.js or some nodejs web server.

@a5rocks I know flask but how would I tie it in with authentication?
