"standing on the shoulders of giants"

This project would not be possible without the pioneering work of evanp and @cwebber along with @Gargron and @mmn and many others!

I really look forward to the May 31st beta launch of pixelfed.org

YSK: Federation support for PixelFed is not ready yet, still have to finish some important features!

We are getting pretty close though ๐Ÿ˜‰

Brands, businesses, influencers and power users will eventually join the fediverse. Why not embrace them? Its in our best interest to grow the fediverse.

I started a new suite of tools in June to support them. It was created with privacy in mind, you will only see public data insights and stats. Any user will be able to use this feature. After federation support is finished I will focus on this again!

@selea I have considered this, pixelfed may eventually support a patreon model. The creator would receive the full pledge minus whatever the operating costs are.

Would a feature like opt-in weekly/monthly data export reminder notifications be helpful?

Seems like quitter.se is gone and I don't have a backup or export of my account.

Backups have been supported for awhile. Now it is easier to automate them from the admin dashboard. More options will be added to rotate backups and other strategies.

First impressions are everything.

The wait will be worth it when you see all the new features and improvements.

Federation support will not be ready today. I underestimated how long it would take to finish some important features.

Sorry to let everyone down, I will make it up to you soon :pixelfed:

Its almost done, pretty soon you will be able to install pixelfed with a single command ๐Ÿ‘Œ

I have big plans for the admin dashboard. The settings will be split into sub sections because of how many there are.

Imagine a wysiwyg terms of use, privacy policy, or about page editor. Or setting a site wide notice above the navbar. Lots of ways to make this easy to customize without touching the code!

Fixed a lot of annoying bugs and added some pretty cool features. Will push the commits later today.

YSK: Our project has a few IRC channels on freenode. If you plan on setting up an instance, that is the best place to get help!

- General
-dev - Development

@bongo Yes, I am going to donate my wallet to @Gargron & the mastodon team since I have not setup a bank account to withdraw to.

The settings are almost finished!

If you run an instance, make sure you migrate your database migrations every time you deploy!

If you use the Instagram app, what features are must-haves for a replacement? What doesn't work about the Instagram app that I can address?

Let's make the Web free again, support open standards/protocols and decentralize everything.

If you run an instance, you should add it to The Federation website!

Wouldn't it be cool to find people to follow based on the people who you follow? (It shows users that are followed by the users you follow)
