The Mastodon documentation has been rewritten by @trwnh. It now has a search function and a different design as it's now hosted on GitBooks. Take a look!

docs.joinmastodon.org/

If after looking you think a topic worth writing about is missing, tell me what it is!

@Gargron @trwnh I was just taking a look at the older docs a few days back—these new docs look awesome! 🔥

@Gargron @trwnh does this include the missing API docs for the last few releases? We were going to start publishing our own ...

@Gargron @trwnh Did you like working with Gitbook for this? Was it a robust platform and good experience?

@tchambers @Gargron honestly it was kind of rough in a few spots -- the API method blocks don't have any sort of copy-paste at the moment, there were scroll issues in firefox, and it was overall more memory-intensive than a text editor. but it does make linking to other pages and sections much easier, since you can change a page/section title without breaking all links.

@Gargron @trwnh @tchambers @anna I don't know what happened.... She tooted quite a bit about her experience and it was useful.

@Gargron Wow, how convenient--I just joined today. Thanks!!! 👍

@Gargron @trwnh holy shit that is so much better!

if only @trwnh's account's posts actually federated to my instance

@Gargron @trwnh looks great! I'd really like to have some documentation on how the automatic spam filter thing works and what exactly makes a follow go to follow requests on an unlocked account

@noiob hmm. trying to think of where that would fit in -- on the user side or the admin side?

afaik the follow request thing is new in 3.0 for silenced accounts, instead of them following you silently without any notification, it gets converted to a follow request so you know about it

@trwnh oh, that makes sense

I've seen a lot of people be confused about the unexpected follow reqs

@Gargron @trwnh This new design looks great.

There is very little mention of user safety. Is this a sign that Mastodon will be changing their focus in the future?
@Gargron @trwnh Finally it is possible to actually browse it without JavaScript!

@Gargron @trwnh There's some white on white background for the centralized/distributed/federated image, but from a quick look it looks really good, good job :)

@Gargron @trwnh the "Centralized, Federated, Distributed" image needs a dark backgound, otherwise the white lines are invisible on white page.... 👍

@sandro the installation section does need updating, yes.

@trwnh I wanted to add an alternate domain cause mine is quite long and I couldn't do it cause there is no documentation about it sadly.
