Can codidact be used separately from the codidact network with custom local user management?
I am a research assistant at a technical university and have been tasked by our chair to find a software to host our internal Q&As on.
My collegues and I have been doing small code snippets and lengthy calculations and made frequent use of the stack exchange network, so it felt natural to us to use their product or a similarly structured software like codidact.
However, we ran into some issues with stack exchange for teams, as our university mandates, that we use only self/locally hosted solutions. With this requirement, we are not elegible for the discouted stack exchange price, which they offer for educational purposes.
I have been setting up a codidact testing environment on my machine, and I noticed only after completing the setup, that while the site is running locally, the user management is not. I would rather reuse our own existing authentication and credentials framework.
So my question is this: Can codidact (when locally hosted) be used separately from the codidact network with our own user management?
