Merry Christmas fediverse.

Visualizing the fediverse in different ways is really cool.

Can't wait to ship the new fedidb.org 😁

The fedidb.org devtools will soon be available to everyone, without registration!

Along with a fresh coat of paint, more data/stats and an extensive public api, will help developers diagnose issues and test compatibility with a suite of developer tools πŸš€

We identified a configuration issue that affected mobile app support.

To fix, simply run `git pull && php artisan config:cache`, if you still encounter issues let us know!

How can I improve the fediverse.info people directory?

I have a few ideas:

- Allow registration via statuses that contain hashtag topics so you don't need to pollute your bio

- User avatars (held off on this as it would require moderation)

- Topic intersection (group results by multiple topics)

- Filter by instance/domain

- Use localStorage to keep track of profiles you seen to show fresher results

Any more? Boosts appreciated!

Is there any interest in an official Pixelfed hosting service?

Pay as low as $5/month for your own instance with an export feature to easily migrate your data to your own server down the road if you choose.

This could help fund development and our other initiatives like fediverse.info!

First impressions are everything!

We're redesigning instance landing pages, some highlights include:

✨ Modern design
⚑ Feature overview
✨ Customizable text fields
⚑ About page w/ custom html
✨ Improved Onboarding
⚑ Clearer instance rules

We want your feedback, admins please let us know what you want or would like to see!

Boosts appreciated!

One week ago I launched fediverse.info

Since then, 515 people registered and have been added to 1800+ topics!

Discovery is important, and while we strive to fill this void, our ultimate goal is to help standardize discovery across the fediverse.

Every project should have this directory!

PixelFed :pixelfed: is one of the types of server that make up the Fediverse :fediverse:

It focuses on photos and images, with an interface that's somewhat similar to Instagram. There's more info on the official site at pixelfed.org and their official account is @pixelfed

You can follow PixelFed accounts from Mastodon, you might even be doing so already without realising it, because from within Mastodon they will look like any other account. (For example @connyduck is a PixelFed account)

You can get a PixelFed account yourself by signing up on a PixelFed server. There's a list of servers to join at fedidb.org/software/pixelfed, but unfortunately they don't currently tell you anything about how one server differs from another, so you'll have to rely on word of mouth.

There's no official app for PixelFed released yet (though there is one in testing), but you can use PixelFed accounts through Mastodon apps.

Direct Messages still use the old UI, we've been working on a Metro 2.0 design optimized for both desktop or mobile browsers and light or dark mode!

Also we included a privacy warning similar to Mastodon!

We're looking into encrypted direct messages and look forward to working with other projects on this important endeavour!
