My Fosstodon account looks great on Pleroma! 😁

Toots look quite nice as well, however there aren't multiple panes for federated, local, following, etc. like there are for Mastodon. I have seen that Pleroma is fully compatible with any Mastodon client and, according to what I read, that even includes the Mastodon WebUI which is a big plus; I love versatility and options.

1. User settings: 2FA, Bio, PFP, etc import/export, etc.

2. General Settings: Background, theme, notification filtering, timeline view, etc.

3. User search

4. Expand to see the rest of the conversation

5. Open the post in a new tab (only works if public)

6. Character limit: Pleroma lets you post pretty much without a limit. This raised the question of how Mastodon handles it. You can see that it actually shows all the content if you expand it:

fosstodon.org/web/statuses/101

Formatting works well in Pleroma but not at all in Mastodon. The first image is from the former and the second from the latter.

Pleroma also does HTML formatting but I'll leave that to you to test 😉

As Pleroma can use any Mastodon client, I've logged into Tusky on mobile to try it out.

- Tusky inherits the character limit of your instance

- Displays basic text formatting

- Doesn't collapse toots that go over Mastodon's character limit but not over Pleroma's

@amolith Looks like I might end up doing a #Pleroma server instead of a #Mastodon server?
