Unit tests are important! I would have caught this so much earlier. And yet as I write this, still don't have them ready... πŸ˜‚

If you've had trouble with my utility, I just published a couple of small fixes in v0.2.1 πŸ™ƒ


I've heard some folks here toot about having left (or in the process).

Why and how?

I think I want to do it too...

@Jakobiner @rusi @mariusor That's a shame... this is such a primitive feature but I understand it might be too tricky to get right.

More and more I think I'm going to try setting up Hometown again! πŸ˜•

@meduz @kev @KazukyAkayashi Oooh, I've got to do that on my site as well, just when I find some time for it.

@mariusor @rusi So is this a Pleroma issue or a Mastodon issue or just a limitation on ActivityPub's part? πŸ€”

I understand it might be great for performance, but it's confusing for the average person to see incomplete profiles with no way to fetch more info.

Also... why don't I see anything when I visit a profile on any other instance? Can not request the full profile? Why *just* what we *need*?

Read blog.soykaf.com/post/how-feder and it appears to me there's a lot of initial work to do before I invite friends over. πŸ˜•

@wizzwizz4 Yeah it would be the first follow between these two servers. I think it does work similarly.

So how does this federation thing work? How soon after following someone on another instance do I get to see my federated timeline populate?

Up and running with a rough-edges install of Pleroma with Soapbox in less than an hour. 😲

@alex @stux @robby Installing Pleroma. Many other folks suggested it last time around as well, and they're natively targeting a 2.1 release w/ local-only posting. πŸŽ‰

Just doing a quick install which if goes well I will follow up with a clean install in a few days.

@robby Going to try it again. πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ

Mastodon is far more stable as an overall product imo so I want to stick with it for now. Hometown, although, doesn't have an exit path, sadly.

@robby @stux I'm paying for a plan with 2 vCPU and 2 GB of RAM. I think going th Docker route was a bad idea. Since the server anyway is *just* for Mastodon/Hometown, there's no value.

Tried my hand at a custom install but realized it would be a headache to maintain, not just install.

I hope Spacebear's small plan is sufficient for our needs. $8/mo itself will be hard to break even with. πŸ˜•

@imacrea Hey, still setting things up. :)

A trial setup today followed by a proper setup in a week or two. I'm trying not to rush lol. This is a long-term thing anyway.
