@jeroenpraat Thanks! I'm close to pushing the MVP to github, still need to finish ActivityPub support and some other small things. I have picked a name, will be announcing that soon!
@dansup I thought we can use Mastodon for that. 😕
@ahmd_amsyr You sure can, just think of this as another mastodon instance with a different UI and only with toots containing an image. I'd like to eventually get remote profile support so you could see all your toots with images.
@dansup ok, I see what you aiming for, I hope get successful doing this project. 😃
@dansup be careful how you brand this, so you don't get sued! But I'm so happy that someone is putting in effort to something like this!
@maloki I appreciate the concern, the name doesnt have "insta" or "gram" in it and I will differentiate the UI so its not an exact copy.
@dansup cool! Still fantastic though!
@einebiene I have seen that, its a good project.
@pea I'll be pushing the code soon if you want to work together. I'm using laravel, its like rails but faster.
@pea No worries, if you are using activitpub our instances should have no problem interop wise. If not, I'm willing to support whatever federated protocol you are using.
@pea No, I was not planning on consuming activitystream objects without an image, anyone can subscribe but this is an image first service.
@pea Thats a good point, but consider how popular instagram is. I'm sure people would subscribe to a major brand on a federated instance just like they would on instagram. Now the brands can control and own their own instance. I think the problems we solve will help pave the way for this.
@pea @dansup I don't think it's in poor taste. I think that's how it's supposed to work. It's much better to filter out 95% of posts than to create special properties on top of the standard... Also people on your platform will likely not follow people who post 95% text content, they will most likely either naturally follow other users of your platform, or those from Mastodon/Pleroma who post a lot of pictures that fit with your platform, so don't worry too much about that imo
@pea We should defs continue this discussion. Are you on freenode?
@pea Awesome, maybe we can discuss this further sometime on irc.
What will be the name of this project ?
Server run by the main developers of the project It is not focused on any particular niche interest - everyone is welcome as long as you follow our code of conduct!
