Okay Fediverse! 🤯

What do you NEED! ( or want )

For my new project (lovelibre.org) I want to contribute back to the libre software movement by hosting some services.

What kind of free hosted service would YOU find useful?

Tell me what you NEED! ( or want )

With Love,

🚀 Boosts Welcome!🚀

Initially, I am thinking.

- A Matrix Server
- Hosting offen.dev/ for FOSS projects

@arran have you actually ran a production Synapse instance before? I think you're jumping into this without realising how hard and costly it actually is

@resynth1943 I've not run Synapse in production, no.

I was looking into Dendrite considering the performance savings, albeit it's not feature complete yet.

@arran To be perfectly honest, if you don't know the headaches Synapse induces, I really wouldn't go making promises. 😉 I've talked to a lot of Synapse administrators who have either shut down their instance, or continue to suffer under its bugginess.

Personally, since Synapse requires a lot of processing power, I'd prefer you to run multiple fediverse apps instead. But that's just my opinion. 😛

Dendrite looks good, but yeah it's not ready yet.

@arran So yeah, if you do go through with this, get a LOT of storage, and a really fast server. Hope it won't cost too much.

Fediverse apps are a lot lighter to run 😉

@resynth1943 I appreciate your critical comments.

I've have heard Synapse is a huge storage hog, I will most likely wait until Dendrite is ready.

I don't feel like I'm making concrete promises, just in the research phase and want input from the community.

LoveLibre is a long term project , nothing will happen half-assed! - That, I can assure you of. 😂

@arran can't wait to hear more about this project :D really good initiative! ❤️ do you have a write.as / AP blog we can subscribe to for updates?


Nothing yet, I will set up a write.as next week once the plan is fleshed out some more!

I'm very excited :)

btw, Where does Misskey fit in when compared to write.as and Mastodon?

@arran basically it's a platform for full-on blogging, instead of microblogging (e.g. Mastodon).

UI is really nice too. It has IM's, page generation, rooms and channels. ❤️
