ActivityPub can be confusing and/or hard to test or develop against.
I started a new side project called FediDB to help Pixelfed and other implementations debug federation issues.
It will be launching soon, need to test DMs and Federated Stories in Pixelfed 😅
I'm eager to work with other projects on this!
PSA - COSTARS has been disabled in the latest commits.
We have found a few bugs in COSTARS that impacted new Pixelfed instances.
We expect a fix to ship in the next few days, sorry about the inconvenience!
Building an invite feature seemed pretty easy until we got to the small details like
- Unsubscribe for non-users
- Email/Notification Settings
- Limiting potential abuse
- Onboarding invited users with a new registration experience
- Privacy law compliance (we only send password reset/account confirmations atm)
- Invite Auto-Follow
We are pretty excited to ship this feature 😁
Our latest commits include a fix for mobile app users, remote post previews work as expected and no longer display the "No Preview Available" placeholder.
⚠️ ------- PSA ------- ⚠️
If you run an instance with a postgres database, you should update as we've shipped many bug fixes.
We understand some people may want to use Pixelfed with family and friends in a closed environment.
Restricted Mode will allow you to require authentication for every page and disable federation support with a single command.
It will be shipping in the next version! #pixelfed
