This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on /r/Mastodon

Our great sponsors
  • InfluxDB - Access the most powerful time series database as a service
  • SonarQube - Static code analysis for 29 languages.
  • SaaSHub - Software Alternatives and Reviews
  • Mastodon

    Your self-hosted, globally interconnected microblogging community

    Ultimately, any past or current delays can be explained by staffing shortages. Before our budget skyrocketed in November, some periods during this year we didn't have enough money to have people working on redesigning at the same time as continuing to add new features to the apps, so the apps were on hold.

  • mastodon-ios-apps

    An ongoing, (hopefully) complete, collaborative list of all Mastodon apps on iOS.

    In the meantime, you could try a third party app such as Fedilab or Tusky.

  • InfluxDB

    Access the most powerful time series database as a service. Ingest, store, & analyze all types of time series data in a fully-managed, purpose-built database. Keep data forever with low-cost storage and superior data compression.

  • forgefed

    ForgeFed - Federation Protocol for Forge Services

    There is an active project working on it: , and Codeberg is likely to support it when it's ready.

  • gitlab

    the federated gitlab ticket is 4 years old now:

  • joinmastodon

    The official Mastodon project homepage

    Now you have some more work to do, and probably some more money in the project, will you be delegating the development of the to a team to take advantage of UX input?

  • mastodon

    A glitchy but lovable microblogging server (by glitch-soc)

    Can we expect to see any of the features coming to Mastodon mainline soon? Post formatting? Highlighting of misleading links? or local only posting?

  • mastodon-e2ee-specification

    Soatok's Proposal for End-to-End Encryption in Mastodon

    This is a very hard problem to solve. I know it's being worked on by some smart people though, see

  • SonarQube

    Static code analysis for 29 languages.. Your projects are multi-language. So is SonarQube analysis. Find Bugs, Vulnerabilities, Security Hotspots, and Code Smells so you can release quality code every time. Get started analyzing your projects today for free.

  • documentation

    Mastodon documentation (by mastodon) documentations are here. I guess you can upload your documentation in the manner in the style as seen there. Although the documentation that you want is more related to code.

  • rathole

    A lightweight and high-performance reverse proxy for NAT traversal, written in Rust. An alternative to frp and ngrok.


  • frp

    A fast reverse proxy to help you expose a local server behind a NAT or firewall to the internet.
