NYC folks: if you'd like a free ticket to my day long workshop this Friday about, essentially, how to run a great Mastodon instance for your community, I have discount codes!
It's based on my https://runyourown.social guide but it uses the guide as a jumping off point and I get into some of the nitty gritty, including things like "how to stay on top of Mastodon releases and keep your community informed of new features if you don't know anything about programming"
Mobilizon : lifting the veil on the beta release
Mobilizon is an alternative to Facebook groups and events. After a successful crowdfunding, it is time we gave you a taste of this software and updated you
ranting about single page applications
While I understand that in theory, a single page application done right enhances user experience:
- almost nobody does it right because it is way, way harder to write a SPA than a "traditional" web app
- almost every list of justifications I see for SPAs focuses more on benefits to DEVELOPERS rather than benefits to USERS
- SPAs seem to be optimizing for streamlining sites that are full of adtech
I really need to start blogging or podcasting about Pixelfed development.
I could go on forever about the technical details of things and I'm sure someone would find that interesting. #pixeldev
#Mastodon 3.0: A short overview of some of our newest features
For those who haven't seen, socialhub.activitypub.rocks is live! https://socialhub.activitypub.rocks/
It's a forum to discuss ActivityPub implementation, hosting, community building, etc.
So far it works great with #Pleroma, but #Mastodon doesn't support mentions in the Articles we send out (only Notes). So we've opened an issue to fix this: https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/issues/12129
Pixelfed will be a year old in a few days.
I'm a high school dropout that has never taken any CS or computer classes.
Web development is just a hobby of mine, I work in the auto industry.
I'm so proud of this project, I never would have imagined that I could make something like this.
Thank you for helping me realize credentialism isn't so important as you think. ❤️
