I've been trying Pleroma today.
Not gonna lie guys this is kinda awesome. You can post in markown, html and whatever BBCode is, there is a ton of themes, it's more customizable, it federates with GNU Social, it can apperantly run on a Raspberry Pi and on the instance I joined (blob.cat) character limit is 50000, so you can basically type forever.
@gaige Well one could just throw an irc server in there. Or xmpp, not sure if it was necessary to build it into the social network itself 🤷🏽♂️
@person well, not everything in pleroma is added for strictly practical reasons. like the optional gopher hole and bbs server settings
@person Yeah, bbcode was cool (but nobody liked to use it) back in 2000s with forum software. Syntax was hard to type. e.g. [url=example.com]test[/url], [b]bold text[/b]
@person Hubzilla has it too.
Does Pleroma allow placing images in between paragraphs? If so, it'd be amazing.
@person Then you can try Hubzilla. It allows you to place images where you want to, just like a blog post. I've been using it as an Facebook replacement and so far it's doing a good job. I wrote about it too a while back:
Fosstodon is an English speaking Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
