⚠️Security Announcement ⚠️

If you run an instance with federation enabled, please make sure you are running version v0.8.4 (released 2 weeks ago) or newer.

If you are running an older version than 0.8.4, we recommend updating ASAP.

More details will be released in a few days.

the push in February was thinking about this but I didn't get to my minimums of what I considered viable, sorry 😔

Sad news with the article 13.

The other sad thing is that this semester is even worst that what I initially thought. I have literraly no time to live so you can expect few to nothing of this project until the summer break.

If you are a soul willing to push this project you can ask me whatever you want and I'll try to help :blobpeek:

It's bad news, I'm afraid :blobcry:

"Dark day for internet freedom: The @Europarl_EN has rubber-stamped copyright reform including #Article13 and #Article11. MEPs refused to even consider amendments. The results of the final vote: 348 in favor, 274 against"

There's an alternative to Reddit on the Fediverse, it's called Prismo.

The first instance is here, and is open for sign-ups:

The project's Mastodon account is here:


Federation is still being worked on, but you can already follow Prismo users and comment on their posts from elsewhere on the Fediverse.

For example, here's the lead developer's Prismo account:

Translations needed for Fediverse projects 

Ok thanks to @dansup seems that federation is working with pleroma (and of course not with mastodon). Thanks @dansup

Big issues: Yesterday I was until late trying to fix some federation issues and the platform has become very unstable. I'm sorry to say this by I won't be able to meet the last deadline :blobugh: (I'm really sorry) I'll post news as soon as possible.

Feels good seeing pixelfed timeline full of photos and not screenshots of twitter jokes.

Just launched Labs, a section of the platform for experimental new features, available to all Pro users. We'll be using this corner of the platform to try out different ideas, gather feedback, make improvements, and then bring the feature into the core product (including #WriteFreely), if it makes sense.

Our first feature is an alternative web-based editor with a more traditional UI for publishing to -- the Classic Editor.

Try it out now on Labs:

Ok, there is a couple of bugs that I need to fix but they are 'tolerable things'. My plan is to publish a public test server so you can create accounts this weekend, so I can fix possible bugs as soon as possible. Federation should work by this weekend (at least I hope so, basic functionality between servers seems to work). Stay tuned and expect bugs ⌛ :mastodon: :pixelfed:

A really interesting discussion is happening in this socialhub thread, i highly encourage you to leave your feedback if you care about Prismo future!

We will be pushing oauth support for APIs this evening.

If you are a mobile dev with an interest in supporting pixelfed, please join the #pixelfed-dev channel on freenode.

EU citizens!

#Article13 has lurched back into life due to a last minute Franco-German deal:

Any profit-making site over 3 years old will have to install YouTube-style automatic copyright filters on all uploads.

In practice, they would have to outsource it to Google etc. Big tech would choose what we see, even on tiny indie sites.

Please tell your MEPs today, in your own words, that this is not acceptable. They vote on this next Monday:
