After careful consideration, we have decided that this new and exciting UI will be spun out as a separate Pixelfed Labs project.
This means you will be able to self host just this UI and use it with Pixelfed, Mastodon, Pleroma and other mastodon api compatible projects much like Pinafore and Halcyon!
@pixelfed Oooooo, super cool!
@pixelfed can you also register on a instance with that interface? Headless backend?
@Jelv Great question, that will not be supported on release but we will be able to support mastodon registration via apis eventually. Pixelfed won't support a registration api and I can't say about pleroma or other apps.
@pixelfed Yes yes yes!!!
One step more to my dream of having a lightweight backend-only ActivityPub solution, where every user can choose his/her/whatever own frontned!
@pixelfed Looks very cool!
@pixelfed Thank you for your work! I'm not a developer, but AFAIK using the ActivityPub API is a better practice. Is there a specific reason you use the Mastodon API?
@pixelfed Very much looking forward to try this out!
