I remember seeing a tool somewhere to take a Mastodon account archive and turn it into a flat webpage that people can read from start to end, but what was it called?

FediPhoto Lineage is a free open source app that lets you post a photo to the Fediverse instantly, as soon as you have taken it and approved it.

You can get it from @fdroidorg ( and there's a page about it at

I'm going to be on a panel discussion next week on Content Moderation in decentralized networks, hosted by #bluesky.

We'll be talking about the challenges that moderators have to deal with, and what levers they can pull to address them.
