@codeberg I'm having trouble opening and then I realized I don't know where your service status page is. the needs authentication. I strongly believe there should be a public status page. The following are the status pages of other git platforms:

Anyone here using a drone? Thinking about getting one but Iโ€™m not really sure if itโ€™s worth it. Do I really use it more than just a few times in the beginning? A fpv drone sounds like way more fun but dji wants over 1 grand for itโ€ฆ

Just started playing with by @metabolist. So far Iโ€™m really impressed. If youโ€™re on iOS you should consider using this Mastodon App.

Oh, and itโ€™s OpenSource too! ๐ŸŽ‰

Is anyone here using mastodon with an app? I'm using the official mastodon app on iOS and noticed that read notifications on my phone aren't read on the website.

Just found the iOS app from - Awesome app, actually has a local/federated timeline unlike the official mastodon iOS app.

It's been 24 hours since we launched! We never anticipated the response, thank you โค๏ธ

Our directory now has 587 topics from 120 people ๐ŸŽ‰

We replaced the landing page video with one by @Framasoft and made other small improvements! #fediverseInfo

Imagine being able to follow and interact with Instagram accounts from Twitter, with Pixelfed and Mastodon you can!

Simply search the account url from either Mastodon or Pixelfed and you can follow and interact as if you were both on the same website!

This is the magic of the #fediverse

I have encountered more image descriptions on Mastodon in 24 hours than I have in Twitter in a couple of years. Seriously. I'm not exaggerating.
As a blind person, this means a lot to me. If you read this and you describe your images, thank you so, so, so much on behalf of all of us. If you don't, now you know you'll be helping random Internet strangers make sense of your posts by typing in a few more words than usual.

I do not know who needs to hear this, but PSA: if you have a WordPress blog, you can install this extension to add ActivityPub support to your blog. It makes it possible to have people follow your blog via ActivityPub services such as Mastodon, receive new posts and interact with it.

Another question for all the people here:
Is it possible to give a container (a reverse proxy) the ability to:
1) See a clients real ip
2) be also in a docker bridge network to connect to other containers.

I want my reverse proxy to see the real IP from devices connecting to it and also should it be able to speak to e.g. another Wordpress container it reverse-proxies.

I could add -NET-HOST to every container but then I need to map ports outside of docker again.

Another tip: Every Mastodon account has RSS built in. Just add .rss to the end of the URL for your account, e.g.

That lets people follow your public posts from an RSS reader, but it's also useful if you wanted to use IFTTT to crosspost your public posts to another platform.

So far I got everything working (including โ€žprivateโ€œ DoH access with special links for each decice, so no unauthorized use possible) except that caddy doesnโ€™t get the real device ip. After a lot of searching it looks like this is a feature/limitation within docker/iptables. Hope Iโ€˜ll find an easy way to fix this without hacky workarounds or stuff I have to execute on the host.

Iโ€˜m currently building a docker-compose stack containing AdGuardHome and caddy. Itโ€™s purpose: Selfhost an easy to manage adblocking dns server on a vps with automatic https and secured access to DNS-over-HTTPS without a vpn.

I already tried
handle_path /originalpath/* {
rewrite * /newpath{path}
reverse_proxy docker_container

like I understand it from the official documentation. This doesn't work for me...

Anyone here has experience with ?
I want to reverse-proxy to a docker container, but change the path on the fly.
Right now my config looks like this:
handle /newpath {
rewrite /newpath /originalpath/
reverse_proxy docker_container
This works, but only for the exact path. I want it to accept /newpath/stuff/ and rewrite it to /originalpath/stuff/.

Help would be appreciated!

DHL lockers are running windows10. Really?! Looks like a disaster in the making to me...
