Considered setting up a Mastodon instance tonight for the #kitchenerwaterloo community but got 2 mins into the docs and lost interest very quickly. I haven’t done much system admin work in recent years and it would be good to brush up on my skills, but I also don’t want to set something up that’ll become a burden. #mastodon #instance #selfhosting
I don’t recall ever having sung the hymn “Secret Prayer” at church, but I really like this version of it:
@zudn might be overkill, but Mattermore is pretty neat and is easy to run if you don’t mind self-hosting.
@evelyn as for the SaaS component, I’d want it to be a free service. The existing services I’ve seen are expensive!
@evelyn thanks for the reply! I’m thinking more of a homepage for churches that perhaps want more than a Facebook page (for example) but don’t have the time / expertise to run build a customised Wordpress site or whatever. :) By extension you could build a directory of all the sites you host (SaaS app), but that wouldn’t be the primary function. Such SaaS services already exist, though I would prefer something that has an open source component for self-hosting also.
