"We have enormous freedom. That’s not a gift that was given to us, it’s a legacy that was left to us by centuries of struggle. By centuries of people that most of whose names are completely forgotten, the ones who created the freedom and the rights we now have, and that will be taken away unless you constantly defend them."

If you know anyone working on an ActivityPub project and they need any advice/feedback/help or want to spread the word, tell them to DM me! I am more than willing to help or spread awareness!

Pinned toot has permanently closed registration.

It was a tough decision to make, I think it will pay off in the long run 😉

I guess I need to start working on an ActivityPub compatible server with a frontend similar to Vine, I wouldn't want to disappoint @dansup after all.

To make it even more cursed, it'll probably be in node.js, as that's all I can really use without my head becoming a pile of goop.

I'll make a git repo for it tomorrow either on github or on my gitea instance.

I had no idea @amic was working on a federated Vine.

There are only 21 videos on and I know Loops will be small compared to her project!

I regret implementing the Mastodon v1 API

Experimenting with a new Compose UI that supports Loops and Stories!

Seems like morii and picpub are no longer in development.

I will make sure Pixelfed has a decent mobile app 😎

Pixelfed Loops Beta will be shipping soon.

If you run an instance and want to enable it on beta release, please make sure you have ffmpeg/ffprobe installed and ready to go!

There are 3 important components to Loops:

1) Capture & Composing

2) Transcoding & Fan-out

3) Loops UI/Pages

I'm almost done 2 & 3 and hope to ship Loops in beta very soon!

The Loops discover page will be accessible to guests and logged in users!

Anyone remember Vine?

Our next experiment is called Loops and we can't wait to release the beta.

We will be performing some maintenance this evening to prepare for an exciting new experiment!

We don't expect any downtime.

I hope comes back, might have to start a new PixelfedLabs account somewhere else 😑
