Pixelfed federates now! 🎉
Merry Christmas fediverse. #pixelfed
We are an ethical alternative to Instagram.
The project is still young, but we are getting close to a polished v1.0 release with federation support!
We can't wait to join the fediverse. ❤️ #pixelfed
So many exciting things to release!
- New https://pixelfed.org
- v0.10 (Collections + Federation)
- Continuity (Compose new posts across devices)
- Direct (Messages)
- Easy Install
- MomentUI updates
- Blog Posts
- Project Delta (Instance Picker)
- New @PixelfedLabs experiments
- Stories Beta (Non-federated ephemeral posts, will federate after beta)
@inditoot No, it won't be stable or v1.0 for a few months.
Still have a few big features to ship:
- Direct (Messages)
- MomentUI (v1)
- Real time updates
If you're on Mastodon and know the web address of someone on the Fediverse, you can use this to follow them.
1. Copy their profile's web address into the Mastodon search box (see screenshots).
2. Click search, this should bring up a link to the profile and a follow button next to it.
3. Click follow!
This works with many kinds of Fediverse addresses including PixelFed, PeerTube and others. Try it!
You can also use this technique with web addresses of individual posts.
PixelFed is our newest addition for Decentralized Social Networks:
Discovery is important, @PixelfedLabs is testing Profile Suggestions in Timelines with an easy opt-out method.
To be included in Suggestions, you have to opt-in and they are displayed in Timelines as opt-out.
Going to change how the account media tab works in the web UI. 3 items per row instead of 2, and click will open the media modal instead of navigating to the status. I think that will be more convenient.
🔬 New Experiment Alert! 👩🔬
To prepare for full federation support, we are testing improved Notifications. You may notice they load a lot faster on instances participating in this experiment!
Federated Photo Sharing, for everyone!
Server run by the main developers of the project It is not focused on any particular niche interest - everyone is welcome as long as you follow our code of conduct!
