Software stack for developing a simple community site?
It's a brand new project so I have complete freedom in choosing the software stack.
I would like to develop on my macbook then run test and production instances via digitalocean.
For persistence / database backend I would like something that I can scale easily just by adding more digitalocean nodes for example.
I am more than than happy to learn about the most appropriate tool.
I don't want to overengineer things in advance, and Ideally I would like to have a simple project up and running in a few hours.
Any suggestions are highly welcome.
