@marsxyz regarding the license - i have absolutely no knowledge in that topic :) Probably the most "open" one
It's written in ruby (on rails) on backend and Vue.js on frontend
@ajeremias when compared to Mastdon:
- "original toot" is a story (or link)
- toot replies are the story/link comments
- stars are vote-ups
And everything dressed up in a UI similar to hackernews / reddit. Also, you can interact with prismo stories using your mastodon account (by voting and replying)
@prismo so how does this work? Is each 'community' an instance? Like a subreddit equivalent would be an instance? Very interested !
@Diff my laptop died yesterday so the work is a bit delayed but i really want to publish official instance till the end of the week
@prismo Never worked in Ruby before but if there's anything I can do to help, I'm pretty hyped about this.
@Diff i can't "delegate" dev tasks as the development is a bit chaotic at this point but are you keen to help with copy? :)
@prismo Is there somewhere I can read a "Motivation / Vision / Why / What Problems Are We Solving" document? I'm trying to understand how / why federation improves link up / down voting...?
