    Project mention: One of the greatest user interface disasters in history | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-11-29

    Mastodon is a microblogging service, so not meant for large bodies of text. This is why the text entry box is small, the columns are somewhat narrow (especially in deck mode) etc.

    Platforms like https://writefreely.org/ , which are designed to be for blogging and long-form writing, are the place to write this. Write Freely federates so one can follow accounts and interact with posts via Mastodon etc.

  • gotosocial

    Fast, fun, ActivityPub server, powered by Go.

    Project mention: Official Lemmy instance to migrate off reddit | /r/rust | 2023-06-05

    Honestly if a server allows free login, then it shouldn't matter how the donations are spent, the admins are probably at a loss anyway. I've seen large phpBB forums run on donations for a long time, so maybe federated socials can work too. One unfortunate thing I've noticed from running a single-user GoToSocial instance is that it consumes a lot of storage, I'm getting 8Gb just from myself and the instances I follow. This could be brought down with more agressive cache settings, but it still shows that people using these new social media still have habits from Twitter or Reddit, where bandwidth and storage is paid for by advertisers, and don't realize how many gigabytes they're casually moving around. I really hope this won't be the downfall of the Fediverse.

    Project mention: How far did my post go on the Fediverse? | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-10-08

    If you're interested in an ActivityPub that works like that, I work on one called FedBOX[1]. It doesn't have clients at the moment, but that's how I planned to have it used.


  • servitor

    A command-line Fediverse client that doesn’t require a server

    Project mention: Downloading a video should be “fair use” as recording a song from the radio | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-08-13

    In principle, if you want the post and comments without JS you can just pull the underlying ActivityPub document (application/activity+json). I made a command-line browser based on this idea: https://github.com/bentonedmondson/servitor
