One of the most frequent questions we get is: Why doesn't Tusky support push notifications?

Because pushing to devices would require us to use proprietary Google libraries and to run a relay server. But we want Tusky to be pure FOSS (free and open-source software) and don't want to send any data to Google so we decided not to implement push notifications at this time. We are researching other possibilities to make notifications faster though.

Hey folks!

We closed registration in the Shop because we got a wave of spammers--like so many they were drowning out our local timeline. We're bummed that's making it harder for real people to get into the shop, and are trying to be as free with invites as possible. Please feel free to ping me if you'd like an invite. Shop members can generate their own invites here:

Hi, Frederic here. I'm living in Cologne, Germany.

Although I work as a web developer, I won't write about that here. I'm tired of letting that part define my appearance.

I'm into #books, #scifi, #cyberpunk, #rpg (mostly FATE, PtbA, SR), (short) fiction and music.

Besides that I love to #travel, it's a great way to expand your own horizon.

I'd also love to start #writing again, but I keep fighting the distracting humming of that beehive of a brain.

#introduction #introductions Hi everyone! I'm Dave Ross and I've been building for the web since 1996. I'm a back-end developer by training but I have fun everywhere along the stack. These days, I work as Director of Engineering for a 100% distributed web agency.

My hobbies are running, collecting vintage computers (mostly Commodore 8-bits and 68k Macs), and coding.

I miss the early days of social media when it was about sharing cool things you found and making connections with people.

#Federation #Fediverse

Fellow mastodonians, do you usually register in multiple instances of your interest or do you keep your accounts at minimum and rely on federation and following remote users? What's the "intended" use?

So the more users a instance has, the more crowded the federated timeline will be. Is curation by admins typical in most instances?

STEM, data & software engineer, hard sci-fi & fantasy reader, technology, philosophy, INTP... your usual geeky package. Hello everyone!


Fosstodon is a Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
