Now I'm back on groups, I find the challenge is going to be discovery.

Using member count for suggestions probably isn't the ideal way to rank them. There is a section below the fold for groups your mutuals are in.

Any suggestions?

I wish there was a way to opt-out of GitHub's new high contrast light theme.

Pixelfed Stories are federated using a custom activity type, bearcaps and only delivered to other :pixelfed: instances (for now). The bearcap object can only be fetched for 20 minutes, after that we rotate story media urls.

It works great, and to think we went from not-federating for so long to being the first AP-only project to use bearcaps!

Donda and CLB are pretty good but I think Montero might be better.

I can't believe I finally shipped federated stories!!! So happy right now 😁

Now on to groups, live streaming and the mobile app πŸ˜…

In addition, we're using bearcaps and a limited time window for fetching the activity object. Story media urls will be rotated after the window closes.

Just finished implementing the last bit of federation logic for stories! Will ship later today.

Stories will only be delivered to other :pixelfed: instances for now.

Really excited for the Desktop Compose UI!

Had a blast building it, I hope people find it easier to use!

@activitypub or maybe activitypub.network, not sure which domain to use. Finally will get some use out of some of these domains πŸ˜…

Think I might spin up a new pixelfed instance on activitypub.social to host a group or two. Registration would be closed, but that shouldn't be a problem πŸ˜‰ @activitypub

Debating wether to add "system stories" that highlight new features in :pixelfed:. They would be included in migrations, so instance admins wouldn't have to create each one. Wdyt?

Decided to distinguish remote stories using a different colour ring. Wdyt?
