@yarmo Thank you! I just used the Mastodon.py library. Using it to connect with the server is detailed here https://github.com/halcy/Mastodon.py
If you want to make requests, here's the commands I used https://pbanks.net/2021.html#pulling-user-data-from-fosstodon
@rudolf Yeah, I had no use for it at the moment and the files would be prohibitively large to host on my vps. But it's quite easy to pull yourself using the Mastodon.py library with the Mastodon.timeline() funtion https://mastodonpy.readthedocs.io/en/stable/#mastodon.Mastodon.timeline
Fosstodon is an English speaking Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
